Andrew Snow Photography added this to My Houzz: Rooftop Retreat Addition in Toronto
The Ely family's property was originally the garage of an adjacent home. After the lot was severed in 1939, a brick duplex was erected. The house is situated at the end of a driveway, slightly removed from the neighbors' residences. Because of this, the family is provided with both privacy and unparalleled views of the city.Though uncompromisingly modern in form, the addition is clad in rough-sawn cedar, and portions of it are painted black. Left untreated, the siding has weathered quickly, allowing the box to appear as if it may have always been there.
The phasing plan can also help your contractor to consider the bigger picture with respect to ordering materials. The contractor may advise you that ordering all of the framing for phase two along with that for phase one will save you a full 25 percent in material costs. You may decide to purchase it all in phase one and store it onsite, or you may decide it’s not worth the hassle.
