Storm-Ready Victorian 2 beach-style-family-room

Storm-Ready Victorian 2

Having performed a major expansion and renovation of this beach house in 2004 for another client, PBA was asked by its new owner to design upgrades that would allow the house to function for their family’s particular lifestyle. Having just completed renovations and a sizeable expansion of this family’s Baltimore County residence, we found ourselves literally “on the same page” to design modifi cations that would tell the rest of their story. Improvements to this beachside ‘get away” home included upgrading finishes; creating new coffered, trey, and beamed ceilings; and renovating rooms to suit new functions. To complete the transformation, enclosing an open-sided, covered porch and a former screened porch required careful integration of new heating and cooling systems.
