Atlanta Remodeling

Morningside Second Story Addition

Neighborhood: Morningside
Scope: Second Level
New/Impacted Space: 1800 sf


A second story addition dramatically transformed this family home in Atlanta's Virginia/Highland area into a home that still maintains its cottage charm but also features new elements such as a covered front porch, a two-level screened porch off the rear, and raised ceilings and wider openings on the main level. The former screen porch also become part of the home's interior space, smartly allowing this expansion to add over 1,300 sq ft.

Inside, the second floor addition provides this growing family with four new bedrooms and three baths. A large vaulted ceiling and private screened porch are highlights of the new master suite. A new nursery and guest room are located on the other side of the second level. The exposed face of the chimney in the guest room adds texture and character. The opposite side of the chimney is uniquely integrated into the guest bath as one of the shower's walls.
