Never tamper with the classic lines of a Craftsman home. A good rule of thumb. So when the owners requested an addition to the back of their exquisite home, it presented a ticklish dilemma for Kennedy Construction. First off, the small addition to the rear required tieing in the new roof with the lines of the existing roof. Structural work needed to be done. Two supporting walls were removed and had to be replaced by engineered beams. An unsightly overlap occurred when the new beams did not match the ceiling set up. Andrew Kennedy devised a stylish solution. Coffered ceilings! They hid the beams while providing a finish that so perfectly matched the craftsman design.
Our on-staff designer worked closely with the owners to maximize storage, design workable space and add practical touches such as a custom fireplace unit with a TV lift. Crown moulding, wainscotting, new french doors, cabinetry on either side of the fireplace and a brand new white kitchen– every detail of this design carefully complimenting the original house. The addition on the back of the house, which did not look like an addition at all, included a beautiful cedar deck with outdoor heaters installed in the roof.
