Joyce and Jeff McLennand contacted us to design a family room addition along with a one car garage addition.  Jeff, a superintendant for a large construction company, had an idea on how to arrange the additions, but we showed them a more efficient and cost effective way to achieve exactly what they wanted.

The 25’ x 30’ family room addition takes advantage of great views to wetland area and trees.  The new garage addition connects to the existing garage and allows for new space on the second floor.  By adding a laundry room on the second floor and reconfiguring the bedrooms we were able to keep their bedroom count exactly the same, therefore, not impacting their septic system.  

The entire “skin” of the building was updated to stone and stucco.  The family room addition was designed over a full basement that would later be turned into a home theatre.
