Wrayburn Addition



This existing mid-century ranch home had small bedrooms which did not fit the scale of the large main living spaces.  With a new addition, a large master bedroom with en-suite and walk in closet were incorporated, as well as a guest bedroom. 

The addition design was carefully integrated with the main house so that it would not appear as an add-on.  Exterior updates at the main house tie the addition design in with the existing, including new stained cedar tongue & groove siding at all gables.  An exact stone match was found so that the addition maintains the same stone look at all exterior walls. 

The new master bedroom will have a multi-panel sliding patio door that opens onto a new private courtyard space.  A higher roof line at the master allows for a gracious vaulted ceiling.  A bedroom at the entrance of the addition was repurposed as a family office space for homework and bills.
