Two Storey Bedroom & Living / Dining Room Addition

A young couple who owned a single story bungalow in Vancouver approached us to plan and execute a major renovation. They not only wanted more bedrooms for their growing family, but also a larger living room and dining area for hosting family get-togethers and birthday parties, as well as a second floor with bedrooms and a bathroom for their children. Through our design process and meeting with the young couple and listening to the family’s needs we developed a plan and a design. This plan included expanding the main floor and adding a second, new floor above the expanded area. The main floor would include a great room with a living room and dining room, and the second floor would host two bedrooms and a bathroom.

The design also had to incorporate access to the basement in-law/rental suite. A medium size, TimberTech deck was also designed into the plan to provide an outdoor living space directly off of the great room. French doors were used to allow the great room to flow easily into the outdoor living space. Our design process also included a new design for the backyard walkways and outdoor living spaces.
