North Shore Long Island

When the owners of this 1920's bungalow
decided to create a separate one bedroom living space for their returning college student (or visiting in-law), they turned to us to provide the needed functional spaces while maximizing the aesthetic of the added construction.

Expanding out the front, we created a separate side entrance to the new Living Room, Bedroom and Bath, with generous 9'-0" ceilings, topped by a new Wrap Around Porch.

Major relocations including gas, water and septic services, made while supporting portions of the house in mid air, are parts of the work which remain unseen.

The resulting new Front Porch face to the home extends the original home's historic charm towards the street, looking as if it has always been there.
