Special Notes:

The original home was a one and a half story ranch style home with cheap, applied, Victorian style ornamentation. It wasn't good. Part of the addition work included the complete redesign of the exterior facades. Budget and height restrictions dictated that the design of an addition reuse as much of the existing structure as possible. After considering several styles of housing, it was determined that the best solution would be a transformation of the existing house into a simple Bungalow style home.

As part of the project, a detached garage was eliminated and a new basement level garage was added. Above the garage an outdoor verandah was added. Wood timber frame construction of verandahs and balconies greatly enhanced the exterior appearance of the home.
