This addition project was particularly difficult because of the existing interior and exterior finishes.
On the outside, a stucco façade made the new addition’s connections particularly difficult to achieve and match up with the rest of the house in several ways. Not only did we have to cut through several inches of thick stucco work to reach the interior walls we then needed to blend in new stucco work with old to make it seem as if the additions were always there. We also faced a challenging landscape as the garage area's new footprint was situated on a steep hillside that we had to design around and manipulate without creating costly retaining walls.
On the inside, finished concrete floors on this slab on grade home had to be tied into and made connections to create a smooth transition from existing home to all four new additions and custom milled interior trim had to be produced to match the existing rough sawn trim work from the original build.
All in all, the finished product nearly doubled the interior space, gave the clients a two car garage and laundry area significantly enhanced the exterior character of an otherwise bland and washed out façade.
