Home Addition – Wakefield MA
This project called for a total redesign of the third floor of the residence, including a new roof. A new layout to the third floor including a master suite, a new bathroom, and a secondary bedroom were added. A full dormer and a new upper deck were added to the level as well. The goal of this design was to maximize the height on the third floor by creating a softer slope on one side of the roof, and the views of the woods and landscape from the rear facade.
Wakefield Third Floor Addition Project Plan
As you see on the photos of the existing house, the house had an unfinished attic space that needed to be redesigned as a master suite with a bathroom. The plan was to add a balcony that will open up to the outdoor views of the woods and create opportunities for the owners to use it for reading in the nice summer months.
Wakefield Third Floor Addition Project Results
This master bedroom has cathedral ceilings. The bathroom received modern vanity and clean lite color tiles.
The challenge was posted by the building inspector requiring calculations to be performed as to the square footage of the new third floor. The regulations say square footage for the attic floor cannot exceed total square footage of the second floor. We were able to receive special approvals.
