We are making progress again with the help of our contractor. We will be adding around 600 square feet of new air-conditioned living space plus a small covered porch. The new rooms include a Family Room, a Studio / Guest Bedroom, and a Bathroom. A bonus feature is additional closet space in the Master Bedroom which shares a wall with the addition.

We will be replacing all of the windows in our house as part of this project and also blowing additional insulation into the attic and underneath in the crawl space. The new plans have a much more reasonable amount of glass than what the architect designed. These energy efficiency improvements will allow us to use the existing A/C unit instead of having to operate a second system.


The new spaces are colored in green:

It was a cool day on our last trip to the zoo, so some of the animals that are normally sleeping were at least moving a little.

** update ** We terminated our relationship with this architect. Read the comments for additional information. **


Things are progressing nicely. Our architectural firm is m_gold design and consulting. We are moving forward into choosing materials, getting approval from a structural engineer, etc.

Below is the latest revision of the floor plan produced by Martin Gold's firm (mgold@mgold.org).

The light green area includes a new family room, a studio / bedroom, and a full bath.

The light blue area, which includes a screened deck, will likely be optional components that we will not build initially to reduce construction costs.
