The existing windows were removed and the wall was reframed to tie-in the office addition. To the left, metal studs support a temporary wall that separates the construction area from the rest of the house.

Today a light drizzle quickly progressed into a drenching downpour. A giant tarp prevents the rain from saturating the interior spaces.

Stairs to Second Floor Before Renovation. The second floor will be stripped to the studs before construction begins. The reconfigured floorplan will address ceiling height issues and give each space a little more breathing room.

Play Room Area at Top of Stairs. The bedroom addition will connect to the existing structure along the (front) wall with the window. Most of this space will be consumed by the new bathroom.

Pool Side Bedroom View towards Stairs. A new shed dormer and window unit will replace the skylight in the pool side bedroom to raise the roof line and provide a little more space. The existing doorway will be moved to the right and basically switch places with the closet.

Right now we’re standing at the top of the stairs looking into the middle room at the back of the house. This room will be opened up to create an open play area central to all the new bedrooms. The space will be shared by the den/playroom and rear middle bedroom.

New shed dormers in the driveway side bedroom (not pictured) will raise the roofline to provide vertical clearance.
