While the exterior of this home is undergoing a radical transformation, the interior of the ground floor is being kept largely intact. Most of the new interior work is at the addition of the 2nd floor, where a new master suite, kid’s bedrooms and a den bring this small starter home into the modern world of a growing family. The stucco exterior is being completely removed and replaced with durable, ecologically-conscious cement siding, and a wood rainscreen provides dappled shading at a new sunroom. Exposed beams and a tongue and groove wood ceilings have a mid-century styling, while energy efficient aluminum windows are decidedly contemporary. Metal roofs complete this palette of maintenance-free materials so this family can age-in-place and enjoy the home for years to come.
