bEACON hILL second-story addition

residential

 

With two kids, our clients’ one-story craftsman was getting cramped. The solution to this problem: a second story addition. The additional space allowed us to move all sleeping rooms upstairs, opening up the first floor for living, kitchen and dining. To take advantage of the incredible views of Lake Washington and the Cascades, the master bedroom features glass folding doors that open to a sitting deck.
