In order to preserve the space of the existing rear yard, a second story containing two bedrooms, a bathroom, laundry room and a master suite was added to this existing one story home. At the first floor, the plan was re-organized to create a new formal dining room, enlarged open kitchen, maid's room and an expansive new family room. Additionally, the existing carport was enclosed to create a garage. The New England/Cape Cod style of existing home was maintained, and dormers, front setbacks, bay windows and low rooflines were used to keep the massing in scale with the surrounding neighborhood.
