Conversion of a frame two-flat to a single family home.

Project Emmett was a complete interior and exterior renovation of an existing wood-frame 2-flat building. This renovation was extensive and required excavation of the existing basement and a one-story frame addition with a roof deck at the back of the house. The result is a highly functional 4 bedroom/3 ½ bathroom single family home complete with many unique amenities including a dog shower. Modern materials such as cement lap siding and corrugated metal were used to give a rather traditional looking 1910 farm style house a clean modern edge.
