1940S Bungalow Conversion to 2 Storey

1940s Bungalow Conversion to 2 Storey

This 1,000 sq ft bungalow was too small for the homeowners' growing family. Moving was not an option so they decided to add the space that they needed. The design they selected involved

converting the existing 1 storey home into a full 2 storey. Sakiyama Construction completely gutted and reconfigured the existing main floor and then added the second level. All main floor walls were built out to allow upgrading of insulation to current standards. Original windows were replaced by triple pane units, also used in the second floor. All plumbing, heating and electrical systems were replaced to meet Code.

New house design included an addition with upper and lower cedar screened porches (almost finished construction in the photo). This structure was supported on piles and included roof lines that tied into the main home. Care was taken to ensure that this structure ultimately could be developed into 4 season living space.   1940S Bungalow Conversion to 2 Storey
