This renovation sought to take a lackluster mid-century home and give it more punch. The master bedroom, an office, a guest room, and an outdoor pavilion were relocated to the new second floor. The main living room was kept intact other than redoing the cabinetry: this room with glass walls and high beamed ceilings was the best part of the old design. A new glass-intense, floating step stair tower becomes the beacon of the entry and connects the new and the old. The original basement floor master bedroom suite was turned into a rentable apartment. The footprint of the house was not modified; and even the siding on the ground floor was left. Siding on the new upper level was chosen to compliment the original stained cedar siding.
