the existing 1960's single-story fixer-upper was in bad shape. but it sat on a beautiful cul-de-sac in a desirable downtown neighborhood. our client new a major overhaul was needed. we elected to keep the footprint of the original home and expand from there. 

architecturally, we opted to remove the old, tile roof and drop in a new second floor. two separate wood-clad boxes overhang the original first floor footprint. the kids rooms and a loft were relocated in the east wing and the adult spaces which consist of a gym, theater, and band room are located in the west wing.
