The Project:

This family was facing a situation that we see a lot of. The cost of living within the area they work is higher than their income can support. So the mother and daughter decided to place an additional home on the property that the family owns. Who got the new house was quite the debate, but the plan and build turned out to be a unanimous success by all the family. We built a 720sqft second unit addition off the rear of the home with completely independent services. The structure was attached with a small breezeway with adjacent courtyard for outside entertaining. I can see them outside enjoying a nice cup of tea as we speak! This home was completed in 2009.
