A second level was added here to a rather plain existing home that did not take in the views. The entry was raised from the stair landing and the interior was entirely redone.
We pushed out the living room wall to the end of the ridge beam and added windows facing the valley. We replaced a load bearing brick fireplace with a thin structural truss, enlarged and opened the kitchen and created an upper level office to capture sweeping panoramic views.
Spacious and tranquil, the master bath offers a respite within the house and provides for great views over the valley.
