We completely changed the rear of this property. We added on a huge great room with cathedral ceilings. New siding and shingles on the existing home blend things together. A patio and pool finish out the area.
We added on to this Tudor to create a master suite, with a balcony looking over the 30-acre property. We used the same cedar siding and railing that are visible on other parts of the home to make it look like it was always there.
We added a 2nd floor on top of this Bethlehem garage, It created a 24’X36’ man cave above.
We added on 2,400 square feet, tripling the size of this old farmhouse. A typical addition would have been out of scale to the original home, so we built another one next to it and connected the two together.
This project was designed from the roof down because you don’t have a lot of elevation to work with when you add onto a ranch home. Some additions have a roof that is higher than the house, or worse, a flat roof gets stapled onto the back. After we designed a roofline that matched the home and blended in with the neighborhood, we determined room sizes and wall locations. We enlarged the kitchen, replaced a deteriorating sunroom, and added a huge master suite. The existing middle bedroom became an office that leads into the new master bedroom. On the exterior, we re-shingled the existing roof and installed new siding on the rest of the house to create a seamless transition between the old and new. To see the inside, check out the “Parkland” jobs in our Kitchen and Bath photo galleries.
With this 200 year old farmhouse, we made the addition look like a typical “summer kitchen” that would have been added on in the 19th century. It contains a master suite, and powder room, and deck. For details on the inside, see “Zionsville” in the Historic Renovations photo gallery.
On a busy street in Bethlehem, we added a handicap in-law suite on the first floor and a master suite on the second. All new windows and siding blend both together.
In Historic Bethlehem we added on a garage, family room, and master suite to a house built in 1798. We doubled the square footage while maintaining the size, scale, and integrity of the existing building.
Radiant floor heat keeps your feet warm when the sun goes down and in the winter. Complete with standing seam metal roof and skylights, this Bethlehem sunroom is where the homeowners spend all their time.
We added another bedroom on top of the garage for a Nazareth family.
We added a family room and Trex deck to left side of home in Tatamy.
In Salisbury Township, we added a second floor on a ranch home in one day. We built the second floor on the ground, stacked the existing roof on it, and set them back on top.
In Hellertown, we matched up the brick, windows, and overhangs on this family room addition with a garage underneath.
Shafer Construction built this house in Saucon Valley in 1994. Since then, we have added 1,500 square feet and updated the existing house in 2007. The new addition balances the original house, and the colors make it look warm and homey.
