Anyone Have Suggestions for Addition?
Hi folks -
I love my little house. But it IS little! It's 1056 sq' total, 2 bedrooms (small), 1 bathroom. The house is one room wide front-to-back. In other words, it started out as two rooms on the first floor one right behind the other, and the same thing upstairs above the 2 downstairs rooms. At some point a kitchen was added behind the back room, the a strange little divided area with bathroom on one side and laundry room on the other. Narrow.
I'd love to bump out at least the kitchen and maybe also part of the room in front of it and the laundry room behind it. See the pictures. In the side view photo, the kitchen is the room with the bay/bow window (which is it? Never can keep those straight), where the patio is now. In that same photo you can see where the first part of the house ends and the kitchen begins. The part where the kitchen is is only one story. The two windows to the right(behind the kitchen) are the narrow laundry room (more like a hallway, actually!).
Do any of you with PhotoShop (or other) expertise have any suggestions? I really don't want to lose the integrity of the house, but I'm really feeling claustrophobic. :-)
I'd love the addition to be sort of a year-round room with great windows and an open feel. I'm very non-creative and just don't know how to start. Plus, if anyone in the New England (I'm in Mass.) area knows any reputable companies that work well on antique homes I'd appreciate the recommendation.
I'll post interior pics at another time; I'd like to first start with what potential it may have from the outside.
Sorry that, in the front-on pic, the bushes at the front right of the house are so large - behind those are where I would want to build out (into the yard).
