These are preliminary images of a dormer addition on my own home. The house is a 1917 “worker’s” bungalow in the historic district of Takoma Park. I work from home and the 2nd floor is now both office and bedroom. There are many unusual elements including:
A vaulted Ceiling Clad with Galvanized, Corrugated Metal
Exposed LVL Studs above 6ft
LED Strip Lighting
A Central Plywood Core that houses the office on one side and bed/dressing on the other
Daylight streaming through from 4 sides
Original Flooring That’s Been Stained with a Semi-Solid Stain (intended for wood siding).
A roof balcony visually and physically extends the space. The railing isn’t finished yet nor are the future large planting boxes and furnishings.
The palette is dominated by natural materials — oiled & raw woods, steel and copper — along with color saturated paints and fabrics.
