custom addition West Seattle - second story addition

second story addition


The project started with a very ordinary brick '50s rambler on an incredible view lot in West Seattle. We started by building a new 2-car garage. After removing the brick, we built out and then up, creating a 2-story atrium and a full second level, then finished the exterior with craftsman-style trim. The cedar soffits under the front door were reclaimed from the original soffits in the rambler, creating a new look with vintage material.
