East Side Storey
LOCATION: West Rouge
OVERVIEW: We designed and transformed a bungalow to a Cape Code Style two storey home. Our client wanted to maintain the slightly sloped ceiling on the main floor and live in the home throughout the project. The only change to the main floor living space was the stair case leading up to the second floor – everything else remained the same.
The original roof was left intact, and a knee-wall was built around the perimeter. The floor joists for the second floor were placed on top of the knee-wall and span the ridge of the original roof.
The new, two storey entranceway was finished with fibre cement siding (aka Hardie board).
The large master suite has a walk-in closet and ensuite; and offers a beautiful view of Lake Ontario and the Toronto skyline. There are two additional bedrooms.
FEATURES: Metal roofing, continuous external insulation, oak railing on stair case.
