American Foursquare Renovation with Arts and Crafts style design

Exterior, with Sympathetic Addition on Back

We painted the exterior of this house using a color scheme typical of the era in which it was built, the second decade of the last century.

In the two pictures below, you can see the rooms added onto the back of this house.  We added roughly eight feet onto the back of this house in the interior.  You can see the affected of the rooms here and here.  As you can see, we also added a porch onto the back of the house, with a door leading from what is now the breakfast area out into the back. 

Other items of special note in these picture include the peak at the top of the added structure, the windows and the landscaping.  The peak at the top of the second story is the original peak from the house.  We saved it and re-used it once we had the addition built.  The windows from the second story are also the original windows.  Although these pictures were taken with snow on the ground, in the picture to the left you get a glimpse of the brick patio that we also installed in the backyard, with a path leading from the driveway to the new back porch.  The patio actually wraps around to the far corner of the house, as well.

In the picture above to the right, you can see down the length of the house.  The new addition begins in between the two windows on both levels.  We have woven new siding in with the old so the exact starting point is impossible to pinpoint.

 

 

 

Here are a couple of pictures showing detail on the porch on the addition.  The windows are new to the home, unlike many of the other windows in the addition which were salvaged from the original exterior wall.

 

We built the railings to match the original railings on the front porch.
