Project Description

Benson Beauty

The vision for this project was to create additional living space that would complement the exterior of the original 100+ year old home and match the architectural detail on the interior, bring more light into the living space and create a master bedroom and ensuite!

While the addition would satisfy the the creation of a master bedroom with a large walk-in closet we repurposed one of the existing bedrooms into an ensuite oasis! The final floor plan created a space for the owners that is integrated with the home while affording complete privacy.

As you will see by the photos we were able to match the window and door trims, baseboards, flooring and event the door hardware right down to the original brass screws for the door hinges!
