We built a second floor addition on this previously small, single story cottage. The existing structure was in a great location and had fantastic views but it was a summer-only cottage. The owners wanted to maximize the views, make the house year-round, and enlarge it to accommodate their family. We built the 2nd floor addition and renovated the rest of the house in the style of a classic summer cottage, complete with built-ins and second-floor decks. The detailing of the custom-built entry cabinets and office built-ins honor the Arts and Crafts tradition. The kitchen cabinets, bathroom wainscoting and trim details throughout the house continue in this traditional vein. The colors that were chosen give it a contemporary feel, making it a superbly comfortable and welcoming house.
