Virginia Highlands Home – Before
A couple recently came to us to help them expand their home but keep the historic integrity of the bungalow. They love their current one-story, two-bedroom home. It is located in a wonderful neighborhood, Virginia Highlands. However, they are expecting their first child and simply need more space.

Due to the lot size, we decided the best way to expand this home was to extend up. The design adds two additional bedrooms, a shared bathroom, an office/play room, and a new master suite. This will all fit inside the new roof structure, without changing the homes footprint.

Virginia Highlands Home – After
By keeping the overall massing to a 1-1/2 story appearance from the street, the home remains a bungalow and fits in with the other homes on the street. It looks as if it could have always been this size.
