This structure houses a family and a home office, and the owner wanted to add a family room and master suite so the living and work spaces could be better integrated. Despite its postage-stamp sized lot, this former kitchen and laundry dependency dating back to 1803 (with a second story added circa 1895) offered fantastic possibilities. An earlier one-story concrete block addition was removed. The new addition begins with a narrow hyphen that gently connects with the original brick and frame walls and the simple hip roof. Compatible materials and forms connect new construction to historic; the flare of wood shingles around the existing second floor line continues as an shallow overhang which grows deeper across the back to form a porch. The second floor and attic level windows offer spectacular river views.
