Small Addition, Big Impact
A 2-ft. bump-out brings a midcentury home into the next century.
I first worked with Stacy and Eileen to remodel their Wisconsin vacation cabin, and we were in the process of drawing plans for the remodel of their existing house in Edina, Minn., when a good-looking house in a neighborhood they admired suddenly came on the market. Built in 1958 on a tree-lined street, the house is in a neighborhood known for its midcentury homes. These homes have low rooflines, large windows, and bright and airy rooms. When Stacy and Eileen’s offer was accepted on the house, we quickly abandoned remodel ing plans for their existing home and went to work on this new project. Our aim was to update the house without sacrificing its midcentury charm.
