Blending New & Old

In Celista, we’ve just started an intriguing new project involving a renovation and an addition to a lakefront home that was originally built about 20 years ago. The owners are seeking to update it it into a permanent home; one that’s large and comfortable for their family and friends.

Below you can see the architectural plans for the addition and renovation. And you can also see our progress to date.

The original home had about 1,400 square feet on the main level, with an additional 500 square feet in an upper loft. The basement has also been completed. The new addition features a 400 square foot addition to the main house, a new 800 square foot garage, and a 900 square foot addition to the main house that will be on top of the garage. When completed, the home will have approximately 4,500 square feet of finished living space, plus a brand new garage that is huge by any standard.

The owners are busy with making their finishing selections and watching the progress. In the weeks to come, we’ll be finishing the trusses, sheeting and shingling the roof, starting mechanical rough-ins, and working on connecting the old to new for plumbing, wiring, and HVAC.

Here at Copper Island Fine Homes, we love the challenge of these types of renovations and additions. If you’ve been dreaming about a little extra space or a renovation to modernize, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
