Branching Out: Serene Addition in the Trees

On March 19, 2014, in Portfolio, by Justin Bravo

“2012 Best Room Addition from the National Association of the Remodeling Industry”

With this home addition, Lone Star Remodeling And Renovations has created a unique space that is truly versatile. The vaulted ceilings, multiple wood windows, and an extended bar create the feeling of an outdoor living space with the added comforts of a luxury family room.  Our client needed additional space in her home for both entertaining and as a space for relaxation. In the rear of her home there was a large brick fireplace that spanned across the entire back wall of the room. We elected to remove the fireplace to open a view into the addition from the newly formed breakfast area.

Spanning 410 square feet, the addition enables the homeowner to have a sunken den with large windows that emphasize the neighboring wildlife and scenery. The beautiful wood windows are truly the highlight of this addition. The level at which the addition was poured along with the plentiful windows, gives the feeling of being in a treehouse – as you look over the treetops.

Outside, the addition has a brick exterior and hardie siding to match the home. Due to the size of the new addition, we had to modify an existing deck to accommodate both the level and footprint of the addition. A winding sidewalk connects the deck to the front of the home. Along the sidewalk are gardens, ponds, and water fountains to highlight the tranquil setting.

Inside, an existing fireplace is replaced with a small stairway that leads into the home addition, while hand scraped hardwood flooring is utilized for the stairs and for a walk-way to the patio door. Finally, luxury carpeting drapes the den area. By removing a fireplace that was rarely used, the homeowners expanded the view of their lovely property and enhanced the value of their home.
