Cottonwood Park 2 – Pop-Top
Our clients loved their home, but with 3 young kids and only 3 compact bedrooms to accommodate the 5 of them, they were quickly outgrowing it.
Having been recommended to us by their neighbors, for whom we had completed a “pop-top” several years earlier (see Cottonwood Park 1 – Whole House Remodel), they were familiar with our work and the possibilities for expanding their home.
And so by adding a 2nd story to take full advantage of their home’s footprint, we could create the additional space, approximately 600 SF, needed to accommodate their growing needs, while allowing them to stay in their beloved neighborhood.
In this case, the “pop-top” was added on to the Bedroom “wing” of the house. With some urging to be a bit more “selfish”, our clients agreed to keep the entire 2nd floor for themselves. They got the spacious Master Suite they had long dreamed of, as well as a separate loft Study and supplemental walk-in storage room. And the Kids each got their own bedroom on the main floor – along with a secret play room (accessed from their closets) beneath the new stairs leading to Mom and Dad’s retreat.
