Project Description

From the moment design began on the Schneider’s small two-bedroom cottage style home, it was clear that in order to make the addition appear original, the new roof should be situated perpendicular to the existing. This demanded complex solutions to some design needs that were unique to the Schneider’s house. The second floor is only a half story, meaning the rafters sit on the exterior wall below allowing only the center of the room to be usable living space. The new rafters needed to be situated just so in order to give enough room for doorways into the new bathroom and walk-in closet, as well as providing enough head room for a double-landing U-shaped open staircase. The new living room floor needed to be sunken to accommodate the new taller ceiling joists and to give more ceiling height on the main floor of the addition.

We were very fortunate to receive the opportunity to both design and build this addition for the Schneider’s. It was a joy to see it come to life piece by piece. We love the iron balusters and wrapping staircase with the combination of vaulted ceiling planes above, and the built-in bench area with arched openings. The many windows give a ton of natural light and the pass-through opening from the kitchen is a great touch. The craftsman style half walls and square archway that act as a threshold from existing to new is nicely integrated into the new stairs and lower landing.

Since the time we completed this project, we have come a long way, but we enjoy reflecting on the project that really began our journey for us onto the path of design build. We are honored to be able to share that history and relationship with the Schneider’s.
