Second-story Addition & Bathroom – Chevy Chase, MD
The owners had bought the home with the idea of adding a luxurious bath to the stately brick home. But, they did not want to add on an overbearing addition that would clash with the home’s quaint style.
They instead hoped to increase the size of the bath while keeping the integrity of the home. They also wanted a usable closet—the existing walk-in was too small for two people. Glickman found a solution by adding to the existing garage. A small one-story garage with a flat roof, it was perfectly suited to house a second story on top of it. The result is an addition with a dormer, which blends flawlessly with the house and looks as if it had always been there. Inside, the room is spacious with all the modern amenities of a new home, including a step-up tub and a roomy walk-in closet. Finally, the clients chose to have Glickman convert a screened porch (on the opposite side of the home) into a more functional sunroom.
