HISTORIC HOME ADDITION
Shenandoah Valley, Virginia
Though a very well appointed home inside, this home was riff with problems. For starters, the home's front door was turned away from the drive and entrance to the site. Inside, the home was a mere one room deep. The exterior had been "updated" with vinyl siding and vinyl shutters that did not fit the historic authenticity of the home. One of the older homes in the area, our proposal was to reconfigure the entry to be accessible from the drive and add a sumptuous family room and ground level Master Suite. The addition would have afforded an intimate courtyard to the interior of the complex. Unfortunately, the proposal never left the drawing board. The homeowners' decided to put the house on the market rather than constructing the addition, but were very pleased with the proposal.
