We are opening the roof in preparation for the new framing for the second story addition. It’s pretty dramatic to see the roof of your house so open!
Here’s the architect and owners standing on the roof of their house as it is being prepared for the framing of the second story. If it weren’t so foggy, you would be able to see the dramatic view of Puget Sound in the distance, a view they will enjoy from their master bedroom addition.
We are moving right along finishing this rambler. The exterior is now painted and the owners are soon to move in. With the unique forms and colors of the various additions, the home has become something for discussion in the neighborhood! Should additions (or new houses for that matter) be exactly what the original house was like (or what the neighborhood is like) in terms of its design or could it be different? Why must something new be the same as something old, especially if that old is not particularly exciting? As long as it works in terms of function, can’t we have a little fun with the building? Can’t it be a piece of art? Or perhaps a reflection of the values and interests of the owner?
