second-story addition & bumpout
This Capitol Hill home on a postage stamp lot was literally rebuilt from the inside out. We underpinned the foundation and dug down 3 feet to create a full-height basement, then rebuilt the main floor system and added a full second story master suite. The result is a charming home with Cascade views, all ready for a talented owner who is completing the finishes himself. Completed 2007.
Architect: Loren Hill
- Foundation was replaced in sections to drop the floor of the basement
- Framing included rebuilding the main floor structurally from the inside out
