Raise the Roof
This midcentury home’s expansive garage addition (the clients actually use it as a workroom) matches the original brick. A pop-up to the original structure increases interior volume and light with the addition of clerestory windows.
The angled garage connects to the original structure with a new entry vestibule, which extends to the rear deck. In keeping with its age, the home was ready for a new roof, as well as replacement siding, windows, and gutters.
The homeowners—fans of the Craftsman movement—chose the mahogany front door for its period details. Grey cleft slate floor tiles add to the foyer’s organic appeal.
A row of clerestory windows—made possible with the pop-up addition—adds to the natural light that floods the living room from a full bank of new insulated windows below.
