This project is a great example of how restrictions sometimes lead to a new, better design. The homeowner originally thought that the 700 square foot house could be torn down but it was deemed a contributing structure in a historic neighborhood and its small footprint and short roof proved difficult to add on to. After working with the Historic Commission for a larger footprint, we landed on a one-story plan that utilized the existing house while adding modern, open living space and a Master suite at the rear. A breezy, open porch connects the Master, Living room, and the backyard.
