Lisa and Anthony had been thinking about adding a second story for several years when they contacted H & H Builders. They wanted a project that would give them more living space and also enhance the vintage character of their house. They also wanted a reliable professional contractor so that they did not have a repeat of an earlier experience with a kitchen addition that took more than a year for the contractor to complete.
We designed a new second floor, “pop-up” that included a new master bedroom, bathroom and guest bedroom. A new showcase stairway was added. The new stairs open up into the living room and front entry. The living room was expanded and opened up by removing a bedroom wall. This also made room for the new stairway.
The new bathroom included a fully tiled shower, double sink furniture style vanity, and a custom decorative tile floor. A unique feature that Lisa insisted on was installing a claw-foot soaking bathtub in the master bedroom. A new gas fireplace with a restored antique wood & tile surround was also included in the new master bedroom. The guest bedroom does double duty as Lisa’s dance studio and home office.
Lisa & Anthony held off on starting the project for a year until they had secured financing. Project started at the beginning of April and completed by the end of July. The final result is literally stunning. The exterior and interior appearance of the home is much more beautiful as a result of H & H Builders work.
