Dormer addition and redesign feedback

August 13, 2019

Looking to get advice and/or other perspectives on a dormer addition and redesign we created with a local remodeler. We have been sitting on this design for a few months and sharing with family and friends to get advice, would be curious what everyone here thinks too;)

The house is a 1949 brick cape cod with the staircase up the middle. The space is kind of awkward to begin with, but we wanted to get as much livable space out of the redesign as possible. The staircase runs right up the middle of the house and the space currently houses two bedrooms that are approx. 17x12. Our main goal for this remodel is to add an additional full bath, insulate, and update the original electric and HVAC, as well as modernize the walls and flooring.

In the attached pdf of the plan you will see the two front rooms that have dog ear dormers and are each about 10x12 ish. The 'master' is along the back of the house in the new dormered section, it is 11x4 with a large walk in closet behind the bathroom. The bathroom is 8x8 approximate (larger than our only other bathroom in the house) and in the hallway those boxes represent a washer and dryer.

Thoughts? Ideas? Would love any and all feedback. Thank you very much!!
