Previously one story, this classic rambler was remodeled to add a second floor and update the exterior feel of the house. The design kept the pitch of the original roofline, but gave more emphasis to the height the house now has.
A new two-story extension was added to the house. The ground floor comprises the new dining room, kitchen, bathroom and guest bedroom. The second floor is a bright loft space that is used as an office.
The second story looks over the high, open living space for a connected and spacious look. The rich wood floor tone adds a warm color against the cool beige walls. Industrial black handrails are connected with wire railing for a perfect contemporary finish.
A wood floor at the top of the staircase adds warmth to the decorative gray and white walls and ceiling. As the stairs turn, an accent wall is wallpapered with a charcoal gray design allowing it to stand out subtly from the surrounding walls. A deep tray ceiling features white frame designs and surrounds a lampshade chandelier with crystal center.
A pale dove gray for the exterior and a darker gray for the shutters creates a soft, sophisticated mood for this two-story traditional home. A wide brick path takes visitors up to the front door in style. Evergreen landscaping and a window box on the second floor adds a touch of color to the space.
The owners of this Keck & Keck-designed ranch house wanted to add a second story. To keep its original aesthetic while expanding it, the renovation maintained the beams and passive solar features such as large soffits and window placement as well as the home's strong horizontal lines, volumetric squared masses and stacking square and rectangular forms.
A look up the remaining stairs showcases the decorative tray ceiling above the second story of this home. The inner gray section compliments the charcoal gray walls below. A white frame paneling design adds a decorative touch along with the lampshade chandelier.
Originally a single-story modern home built in 1959, this contemporary home was remodeled to include a second-story addition. Stone, taupe synthetic wood siding and stucco were used for the home exterior, while a deck and luxurious pool area were added to create a stunning backyard area.
A back patio, outdoor grilling area and second-story balcony combine to make an impressive double-decker outdoor entertaining space. A beautiful pergola over the grilling station adds a rustic touch to this charming outdoor area.
A new rear facade with enlarged doors and windows adds life and increases the living space of this traditional Brooklyn brownstone home. A new deck off the second story provides a spot for outdoor dining while offering cover for the patio below.
This second-story bedroom's outstanding feature is its sliding barn door. The wood tones match those of the contemporary stairway leading up to it. The bed incorporates a built-in bookcase, and the ceiling fan adds a midcentury modern element to the space.
As seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper, the barn home's second story was completely transformed into a spacious eat in kitchen. The walls were removed to open the space and a new kitchen and dining room were added to allow for more hosting.
The second-story spa spills into a 10’ deep 24’x27’ pool that features a grotto-style seating area tucked beneath a privacy waterfall wall. Decorative sculpted cornices and column elements add Old World elegance to the cantilevered design.
