sledge street house renovations & addition
This project saw a substantial renovation to an original cottage in the Woodland Heights area of Houston, and included an addition providing new stairway access to the converted attic, as well as new decks at both the ground level and second floor. The Owner is a professional chef, so particular attention was paid to the renovation and expansion of the kitchen area to meet his exacting requirements. The new kitchen is large and open to suit the Owner's cooking style as well as to allow ample space for entertaining. The attic space was being used in the existing house, but the project substantially upgraded this area to serve as an Owner's retreat, including an Office and Master Bedroom. The new stairway addition provides space for laundry and is designed to be an open, light-filled connection between the house and the outdoors via the new decks.
Careful attention was paid to enhancing the energy conserving performance of the house, including improved insulation and new windows. The small addition has been provided with an efficient VRF air conditioning system.
