The Main Level of the Addition is laid out to provide large entertainment and social spaces, both formal and informal, kitchen, as well as an accessible bedroom and full accessible bathroom, two powder rooms, and laundry area. The Addition connects to the original house at two levels.

A thermally efficient 44-inch Fireplace Xtrordinair Elite wood burning fireplace rated at 76,700 btu/hour is already installed at the lower level, which by conventional measures is sufficient to heat 3,000 SF. It has beautiful cast iron Artisan doors.

The Upper level has huge possibilities. As an example, a family can configure the space as a luxurious master bedroom with spa, and two additional bedrooms with attached full baths, and a laundry area. It is currently framed as office space with independent access from the Main level, and two bedrooms with attached baths are spatially separated from the office area.

The entire Addition construction has Loewen casement windows made of Douglas Fir, with factory finished custom color aluminum cladding on the exterior. Interior window jambs are also factory installed for precision and quality.

Many windows have transoms and divided lights. The windows are individually sized and configured to suit the space they are in, a feature that cannot be found in commercially built homes. All West-facing windows are triple glazed for curtailing heat gain from the heat of West sun in the summers.

Both levels of the Addition have 9-foot ceilings.

All stairs are solid oak, and are already installed in place. Treads are covered with wrap and plywood to protect the oak from construction damage.
