Help, need to hide or redesign a bump out

March 17, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We are adding a mater suite on the end of our house by building out over the garage. We would really like the extra few feet the cantilever bump out over the garage gets us but it makes the house look unbalanced. Is there a way to keep it and still give the house a modern pleasing look? Maybe some time of floating or garden wall beneath. Thanks. Ricky

Hello- Is there any chance of making the cantilever longer? I think that's what is making it look a bit strange as it looks like it's a bit of a mistake, not a design feature. Can you send photos of the house as it is now?

You need to "bump" it out the whole width of the wing above the garage doors as well. 18-24", and make sure the lower part is a different surface than the upper.

Try creating a courtyard below it with some columns that connect the lower courtyard to the overhang. The courtyard could be a great place for a garden.

Hello again- I'd suggest you build a masonry pillar/support out to the side of the garage and create a balcony area on top. Your house is quite traditional so I'd try to keep with the style. I've just used blocks of colour to demonstrate.
