Wilmette 2nd Floor Addition

This major expansion of a small one-story frame residence encompassed the complete reconstruction of the entire 1st Floor to provide a new family room, living room, dining room, and study, an enlarged kitchen, and a new rear deck. The existing roof and attic construction were removed and a full-height 2nd Floor containing four new bedrooms and two new baths was constructed, as was a new attic for storage above. Only the basement, the 1st Floor framing, and portions of the outside walls were retained. All plumbing, electrical and heating-cooling systems were replaced or expanded as a part of the project. The photos of the original residence as well as the completed residence indicate the scale of the project.
