We loved our 690 square foot one bedroom, one bathroom house and lived there for over 25 years. A desire for a guest room, a sewing room and a new kitchen finally got us to “pop the top” and add a new kitchen, three bedrooms and a master bath, now 1,770 square feet total. We worked closely with a gifted team of architect, builder and interior designer to blend in the new yet retain the light, airy feel of the original house. Some original room areas are seeking their new identities, but we’re embracing the idea that it’s good to live in a house for a while before making further changes.
