While teenagers need more room, parents ,on the other hand, need more intimacy . So we are asked to add a new volume to the house for a new master suite with private bathroom.We are also asked to renovate the exterior to make it look different.
Add a carport with integrated storage in the roof. Add a new balcony to the left side of second story. Replace windows and garage door. Modify some openings. Replace siding and shingle. Give more style to the entire house.
Expand the house to provide a two-car garage and a family room with a wood stove in the right rear corner and an access to the natural landscape. Make the rooms above the garage larger and finally change the whole look of the house.
Improve the architecture of the house by adding a carport, a porch, a small den and a room on the second floor. The materials selected should require very little maintenance. Relocate the main entrance if necessary.
Add a 4-season sun room to the rear of the house to enjoy the sun year-round plus a view on the garden. Create a terrace on second floor enjoy the sun from the master bedroom. Make sure the enlargement fits the house's spirit with the least exterior maintenance as possible.
Give the house a grand style more fitting of its location along the St. Lawrence River. At the same time, make a little room for expansion in order to accommodate a desk, an exercise machine and a guest room and improve the windows on the back to better enjoy the river view.
Add a garage large enough for two cars and an atrium, taking into account the existing access to the basement. Preserve the Charlevoix cachet of the actual residence. The project should also include a shaded patio.
