Lake Claire Expansion
|Scope:||Second level addition and interior renovation|
|New/Impacted Space:||1700 sf|
The expansion of this 1927 Tudor Bungalow in Lake Claire provided the clients the additional space that they needed and created a more functional use of the existing rooms. Keeping the Arts & Crafts period details, creating a safe, energy efficient home and blending in with the understated houses of the neighborhood were the keys to the projectís success.
After removing the existing roof, attic and rear additions, Red Level built the second-level addition with modest rooflines. The new space houses a master suite, guest bedroom and bath, and hall reading nook. Interior walls and existing basement stairs were reconfigured to allow for the expansion. Solar thermal and tankless water heater systems, combined with spray-in insulation and Green finishing products throughout all helped to create a very healthy, energy-efficient environment.
