A new 1,000 square foot home office and guest quarters was added above the existing 3-car garage of this waterfront home. Features include a timber-framed entry, great room, bedroom kitchenette and full bath. The existing garage doors were replaced with new carriage house-styled doors and cedar trellis.
On the second floor, patio doors lead to a generous, fiberglass-clad deck that provides views of Rich Passage and passing ferries.
A timber-framed entry porch marks the entrance to the new office/guest quarters. Inside, the stair up to the office/guest quarters features a large window at the landing, with a George Nelson Bubble lamp overhead. At the top of the stair, a small kitchenette, with sink, microwave and under-counter refrigerator, looks out over the backyard.
In the Dining area, cabinets are built into the knee walls under the sloping ceiling, below two large skylights. Low-voltage Tech lighting fixtures illuminate the dining table.
A small bathroom includes painted wood cabinets topped by a laminate counter and recycled glass back-splash, a generous tiled shower, porcelain ceramic floor tiles and a built-in linen closet.
This 1970-era waterfront home was completely remodeled and updated. Demolition included the existing roof framing, window, siding and deck. The chimney was found to be structurally unsound and demolished. Interior partitions were removed to allow for the relocation/reconfiguration of the master bedroom, kitchen and living room.learn more
