Designs Gambrel House – Architect Designed Home Renovation. A Hampton’s inspired renovation and rear addition to a home with a gambrel shape roof.
Brief description: The existing home is a sweet but dated traditional home with a Gambrel style roof, with the living upstairs and bedrooms downstairs. My clients wanted the living and kitchen downstairs, with flowing spaces and bedrooms upstairs. They also wanted the tandem carport replaced with a double garage, storage and a pool.
Solution: We kept the gambrel style roof and demolished much of the back at the lower level so it could be rebuild with more space for a deck to the north and to utilise some wasted south facing space to the side. In the front we widened a front bedroom and converted it to a garage with traditional looking tilt doors. On the other side we added an entry and entry porch, which was really needed and helps to balance the house by making it symmetrical. The gambrel upper level was also extended to the rear for a large master suite with balcony. The overall styling of the completed home is Hampton’s inspired in white and grey.
