On the Drawing Board – Evanston Second Story Addition
Posted April 19, 2017 at 3:21 pm

We are working on a new second floor addition to update a classic existing split-level home in Evanston, IL. The owners came to us describing a familiar scenario, their family has grown, they need more space but are reluctant to move because they love their neighborhood. The new addition will provide a master bedroom, walk-in closet, en suite bathroom, and a private exterior balcony. Not only does the addition provide a sanctuary for the parents,  it frees up a bedroom and allows the kids to have their own bathroom.

New cement lap siding on the existing building integrates the addition and provides an updated color palette to contrast the existing masonry veneer. Architecturally, we have used the addition to compliment the features of the existing building while introducing a more modern edge.
