This was an oddly shaped single story house with several additions that resulted in an “alley” in the middle of the back of the house. The rear of the house borders a golf course and the front of the house is on a main road. The owner wanted to add more square footage, capitalize on the views to the rear and create a larger and more cohesive presence on the road without losing the “small house character”. We used the existing footprint, relocated the main entrance, filled in the alley and added a second story. The owner “loves” the result.
