1940’s Bungalow Gets Second Story Addition

August 23rd, 2012 Posted in Bungalow Additon, Remodeling Projects


We are starting a new project in North Corvallis to add a garage & a partial second story to a small bungalow style home.  Our clients came to us with a tight budget and a tight time-frame in which to complete the job. They wanted to add several bedrooms & a bathroom, as well as enclose the existing carport to make a single-car garage. They also just so happen to be pregnant with twins!  And so the project had to be designed, permitted & built before their due date this November.

Existing House

We created a very efficient new floor plan that gives our clients 3 new bedrooms & a bathroom in a new second story above the new garage & spanning partially over their existing house.  The stairs will go through their living room and partly above of one of the existing bedrooms.  We are meeting strict energy efficiency standards on the entire remodel: extra R-valued insulation, high efficiency doors & windows, intermediate framing techniques, and performance tested duct systems.

At this stage in the remodel we have the new footings & foundations poured, the garage framed in, and the second story walls are just starting to go up . . . .
