San Carlos Farmhouse Second Story Addition
In the “Modern Farmhouse” style, this 2nd story addition to an existing single story house on a small lot is designed to fit snugly in the traditional context. The house size was kept just under 3,000 s.f. (including garage) to avoid the City’ s design review process and associated public hearing.
A split level 2nd floor helps keep the front in scale with the surrounding older homes, while affording high ceilings in the 1st floor great room below the master suite at the rear of the house. Durable yet affordable cement siding is used throughout the exterior.
- Scope of Work: Remodel and addition of an existing 3BR 2 BA single family residence with 1,601.7 existing living S.F. on a 4,400 S.F. lot. A 1,128.4 S.F. addition of new living area will result in a 4BR and 3 BA two story residence with 2,735.9 living S.F. with an (E) garage of 263.4 S.F. to remain (no changes in garage) totaling 2,999.3 S.F.
