This project in Arlington began as a tiny bungalow with a tiny attic that had no space to expand into. We demolished the roof and added a finished second floor with a master suite and guest bedrooms. We also did a comprehensive foam insulation job on the second floor.
nothing like making more our of a single draw and staying a little more organized at the same time....
The intent was to make it look as if the vanity counter-top was running through the wall and into the shower.
The original stair was only an access to attic storage and was met by a chimney just inches from the edge of the last stair. Now that we made the old attic space finished living space we reconfigured the stair for comfort but also removed the party to the dining room. The client wanted to mix traditional w/ their modern fell. So, we went with a mix; a traditional newel post and more square flat look on the balustrade and railing. We later filled the open space below the stair with a custom built-in.
