A new 385 square foot addition nestles between the existing house and a much-loved apple tree in the clients' back yard. The original house in the Broadview neighborhood of Seattle was expanded to the south to provide sunlight, solar heat gain, and pleasant views from the new interior spaces to the large, lushly landscaped back yard.
The new dining room and new master bedroom form twin gabled volumes with a half-bath tucked between. They were built with FSC sustainably harvested wood using 33% less lumber thanks to the advanced framing method. French doors open onto the elevated recycled plastic deck which overlooks a ground-level patio and the yard beyond.
