Modern farmhouse addition/alteration Weston, CT

Project location: Weston, CT
Project type: addition/alteration
Floor area: 4000 square feet
Completion date: 2015
Architect: Brad DeMotte, R.A.

This is a house built in the ’70’s which was in need of updating & remodeling both inside & out. Both the first floor & second floor is to be remodeled, and the basement is to be finished to provide much needed additional living space (due to 3 teenage boys). The existing deck & screened porch on the rear of the house is being removed and replaced by a stone terrace, finished with bluestone pavers & a stainless steel cable rail. Space below the terrace will provide storage for outdoor furniture during the off season.

The front elevation is being improved by creating a covered entry, a mud room entry, wider windows above the entry & 3 dormers across the main roof. The right side elevation is very prominent as it’s seen upon approaching the house, which is being improved by the addition of new garage doors along with a canopy & a bay above the doors. The rear elevation is improved by shifting windows to align with those below, allowing for some symmetry which was previously lacking.

This project is another fairly common one….homeowners buy a dated house on a desirable lot, with the house being torn down in order to build a new house.

The house we designed is a classic center hall colonial, with 5 bedrooms on the second floor & a guest bedroom suite on the first floor. Both the kitchen & family room open onto a bluestone terrace (in place of a deck), with a pergola. The 3 car garage is 2 story space which doubles a gym during the winter months, as it has a basketball court, climbing wall & ropes. The basement is finished, adding another 2200 SF of living space to the house complete with a full gym, play room, another guest bedroom & wine cellar.

Exterior materials consist of stone veneer, precast concrete trim, cedar clapboard siding, PVC trim, Pella windows & asphalt shingle roofing.
