This 1898 craftsman in the Inman Park Historic District provided an excellent starting point for our design/build expansion and renovation. At over 1,900 square feet, it had a larger footprint than what is typical in the in-town neighborhoods, and did not require an increase of the main level to achieve the desired space. The restrictions of the historic district would not allow for an increase to the ridge height, but we were able to gain the necessary space on the second level through a rear expansion and the addition of dormers, resulting in 3 new bedrooms, 2 baths and a large playroom. The main level was reconfigured to a new open layout, with the kitchen opening to a screened porch through a large folding door. Finally, a new accessory building with a single car garage and a storage area were added to the backyard, along with a brick patio and entertaining area, creating a home that feels fully connected to the entire property.
