We started with a basic ranch that already had a garage added and the siding re-done. Phase-1 involved gutting the garage/breezeway, adding a studio out front, and a 2nd floor bedroom. Phase-2 involved gutting the original house, raising the ceiling, and replacing the windows, insulation, walls, and finishes. The result was an extended 2-family house with shared living space. I undertook much of the detail work, creating unique features such as the wing-section ceilings, inlaid pebble floors, and custom cypress vanity and stair guard. Exterior features include a clapboard soffit, tapered brick pier, and a mixed siding palette of re-painted existing shingles, stained clapboards, and corrugated metal siding. The project reveals a fresh take on a basic suburban ranch.
