Quincy Modern Farmhouse Addition
This second-story addition consisted of adding approximately 1,000 sq. ft. of living space, including a guest
bedroom/office, a kids' bedroom, a master suite, a large master closet, a master bathroom, and one additional guest/kid's full bathroom. In a multi-generational household, the family desired to add enough space for their boys to have their own rooms as well as give the mother-in-law some privacy.
With the second-floor addition, we also refreshed the exterior of the home by converting a mid-century ranch into a modern farmhouse. For the style conversion, we added a farmer's porch to the front and a multi-level deck to the back. The white-trimmed windows were replaced with black-trimmed windows in a prairie-style design. We also saved costs by preserving most of the lower level vinyl siding and adding board and batten vinyl siding to the addition above to continue the style change.
On the first floor, the bathroom was completely renovated and features a curb-less walk-in shower. To accommodate a staircase to the second floor, the wall of the existing office was removed. A new french door was also installed in this area to access the new multi-level deck. Once on the second floor, the guest/kids’ bathroom is to the left. We built this bathroom around an existing chimney giving it a unique shape and maximizing useable floor space. Upon entering the bathroom are the sink and toilet area with a short hall leading to the shower.
The guest bedroom/office space includes glass french doors to accommodate either use. The master suite faces the backyard and includes a large bathroom with a shower stall, a soaking tub, a water closet, and an enormous walk-in closet. The hexagon marble floors are complimented with gray subway tile and a unique black and white accent tile in the shower niches.
The basement was also renovated to add an updated laundry area and additional living space.
