residential addition, located within walking distance of the beach on
Oak Island, was uniquely designed to maintain the cottage charm
of this coastal home while converting the single story home to a two-story
The existing single story home was
raised to become the second floor while an entirely new first floor was
constructed on the ground level.
An elevator and internal staircase
were added for access to the second floor, which was renovated to provide a
modern kitchen along with two new guest bedrooms and a screened porch.
The first floor now provides ample
garage and workshop space along with secondary living quarters.
Raising the Original
Final Renovated Two-Story House
The original single story house was raised to become the second
and a new first floor was constructed underneath it on the ground level.
The new ground level now provides ample garage and workshop space along
secondary living quarters.
The original first floor, now raised to the second level, was renovated to
change the existing garage into
two guest bedrooms, to remove an guest bedroom to allow for the entry
stairs and the passenger
elevator, and to remove a 2nd existing guest bedroom to redesign and
provide an enlarged modern kitchen.
