A West Seattle couple faced a problem endemic to the typical architecture of the 1940s. Their solidly built home had a functional first floor, but the second floor was little more than a long, narrow rectangle with low-slung ceilings and windows at each end. The addition of a bath in the ‘70s did little to improve it--in fact, it begged for improvement more than the rest of the space. A desire to create two livable bedrooms and a comfortable bath led to a dormer addition that literally transformed the place. Completed 2015.
