Addition on Union traditional exterior

Addition on Union

Over the last 150 years, the back door of this handsome late Greek Revival/early Victorian house had somehow become the main entrance. A door off a narrow farmer’s porch opened into a small hallway with a tiny closet. We fixed the problem with a small addition in the style of the original house. A gabled porch with turned columns announces the new entry. Inside the door is a comfortable entrance hall with an arched doorway leading into the house. To the right of the door, a new mudroom filled with built-in storage including many drawers and shelves and lockers for all members of the family.

Upstairs, a bright new master bath fills the space under the new gables of the addition. Behind the bath, a once cramped closet was expanded into a walk-through dressing room.

I'm sorry, but we couldn't locate the name of the color. I'm not sure it would help anyway, since the yellow is much more vibrant than it looks in this photo.
