1950’s Ranch Home Entry Addition
The 1950s ranch home had been showing its age for many years. After verifying that they would get better value from a major home remodeling rather than buying a new home, the homeowners proceeded with confidence. PROBLEMS: The original entry hall had a wall just six feet from the double doors, leaving barely enough room to squeeze by comfortably. CREATIVE SOLUTIONS: An entry addition made a big difference! A dormer roof was added and the front of the home was extended almost six feet. The new entry hall has skylights on either side of the structural beam, clerestory windows, and glass block sidelights to make it bright, cheerful, and welcoming. The remodeled home maintained architectural integrity with other homes in the neighborhood, and inspired other homeowners to upgrade their homes.
