Seattle Dormer Addition - master suite remodel Seattle

second-story addition & bump-out


It was a classic Craftsman with classic problems: a previous addition at the rear of the home left it lopsided and diminished its grace.  The brilliance of this addition and remodel is that it restores symmetry by adding a second dormer and bringing out the gable end by several feet.  At the same time, it creates much-needed functional space at the main level in the form of a powder bath and laundry, and a spacious new master suite at the second floor. Completed 2008.craftsman addition seattle, dormer addition Seattle
