East 25th Street Remodel


East 25th Street Remodel
2015

The owners of this shot gun house in Sunset Heights had acquired the adjoining lot and decided to remodel the existing house. Major concerns were for integrating the new side garden into the project design and for accessibility as one of the owners was in a wheelchair. Two new porches on the side were added along with a wood deck and lap pool to the side of the house. The master bedroom at the rear of the house was lengthened by ten feet and the bathroom made barrier-free. A six-foot-long addition to the front of the house provided a reading alcove and entry off a new front porch, which was equipped with a ramp. A new carport was also added. This was a design-build project.
