Addition: Crystal Lake, IL
This project involved adding a new family room addition, bedroom, bathroom and small screen porch to an existing bungalow. Additionally, the owners wanted to change the outside appearance and update the materials and finishes.
Having a large extended family that they wanted to be comfortable when visiting, Jeff and Sheila Mohler decided that a large family room with a strong connection to a newly organized kitchen would accomplish what they were looking for. Sheila and Jeff are avid gardeners and enjoy being outside, which is why a small screen porch was incorporated so that they could enjoy the view of their back yard. A small guest bedroom and bathroom was also included.
The project also involved replacing all the original windows with modern, energy efficient units. A new high efficiency furnace and additional insulation were added completing the energy retrofit of the home.
