Additions and Renovations to a Federal Period House
This hip-roofed Federal house was bustling with a growing family with four little girls, but it lacked a comfortable master suite and the owner was anxious to create a quiet retreat from the family activity.
The dark paneling of the original living room is balanced by a sunny new screen porch.
The available space to expand the house was small, but we were able to create a cozy book-lined den with a gas fireplace and wonderful natural light. There is even a wine cellar carved into the rocks below.
We added a new circular stair, raised the center of the roof, added clerestory windows and converted an inaccessible attic into an exciting bedroom for the oldest daughter. We also created a new master bath and reconfigured two bedrooms on the second floor.
