Addition/Remodel, Woodstock NY
Project type: Addition/remodel
Floor area: 1200 SF (existing), 2200 SF (once complete)
Completion date: 2019
Architect: Brad DeMotte, R.A.
This is a weekend house on a lake outside Woodstock for a Brooklyn couple looking to escape NYC. The 1200 SF 1 story house was built in the ‘60’s & is very dated both inside & out. Their desire was to update the house to meet their needs, while also allowing for additional space both inside & outside the house for their numerous guests.
The house is being completely gutted inside for new plumbing, electrical & HVAC systems, along with better insulation. A 1 story kitchen addition is being added to the right side of the house, while a 2nd story addition is being created for a game room which doubles as an additional bedroom. The existing screened porch is being eliminated, with the space being used to enlarge the great room.
The exterior of the house is being redesigned in the “Scandinavian Modern” style, which they fell in love with on a recent trip to Norway, Denmark & Sweden. They fell in love with the functional, modern elegance of the style & it became the inspiration for the redesign of both the interior & exterior of the house. The design is best described as using a simple palette of materials, with “less being more.” Exterior materials include ”charred” wood vertical siding, black standing seam aluminum roof & black clad windows & doors.
Construction should start in early 2019, hopefully being done by fall.
