Completed: 1992

Project Highlights:

  • » Marcia A. Mikesh Architect Inc. designed two home additions: a new family room and deck, and a new tandem garage.
  • » The front of the garage addition facing the street was designed with a roof slope and detail matching the existing house, however, the rear part of the garage has a “flat” roof system to allow an existing upstairs bedroom to keep its egress window.

    Home addition designed by Marcia A. Mikesh Architect Inc.

This was one of the firm’s earliest projects. The retired homeowners wanted more space to entertain their growing extended family. Remodeling of the main level included a new master bedroom, laundry facility expanded dining room. A new large deck connects the new garage and family room additions.

The new family room is less traditional in appearance than the garage since it is behind the house. A new bay window complements the angled face of the new fireplace inside the addition. The ceiling has a pyramid shape, echoing the roof framing. Architectural services included structural engineering and consulting on construction changes.
