Shades of Gray

This once modest beach cottage was slowly transformed over the years into a grand estate on one of the North Shore's best beaches. Siemasko + Verbridge designed a modest addition while reworking the entire floor plan to meet the needs of a large family.

Thanks for your question Jgoldstein123. The siding was subcontracted and we aren't sure who they used.

Adorable Garage/Guest House! - Would the height of the upstairs room be tall enough for a bedroom and bath? This looks like it could be added on to our existing house to gain more bedroom and bathroom space Would it be possible to see the 2nd floor floor plan?

Thank you for responding. I certainly respect you for not supplying floor plans, etc. I am curious, do you have any photos of the upstairs you could share? If not, I understand.

Thanks for your inqury Joyeble. We don't reveal costs for our projects. First reason is the privacy of our clients. Second, there are so many different variables that go into design and constructing that can change the cost drastically. Location, material selection and availability, contractor/sub contractor selection, and so on. We hate to give you a number and be completely off for what you are looking for. Your best bet is to find an architect and contractor in your area and start working with them to get a rough estimate.

Thank you! The gray on the exterior cladding is a custom made color for this specific project. I suggest bringing the image to the color pros at Benjamin Moore and have them help you pick out a similar color.
