This is an existing 1952, two bedroom, one bath, post war home.The program is to add four hundred square feet to the existing home, expanding the master bedroom and master bathroom. The interior wall separating the family room and the kitchen will be removed to make one great room.

A four hundred and twenty square foot wood deck will also be added to the back of the house.Curb appeal is a big focus, on this home. The addition of new aluminum windows, a new entry condition, new stucco, and a roof, eliminating the spanish tile, and the crafstman mullions in the windows, will tie the project into one aesthetic.

The addition of skylights, and two large sliders, that will share the same guide track will allow the new xeriscape yard to enter into the home.
