CCR recently worked with the Binkleys’ to consider ways to expand their one-story, rambler to provide children’s studies, separate bedroom spaces and an open play-zone. They were excited with our initial thoughts to incorporate these spaces ‘under-one-roof ‘ for a less substantial, two-story volume with no added site disturbance. The idea to use a modern interpretation of the NE regions, classic Cape Cod style was quickly approved. Our use of expansive, thoughtfully placed windows to leverage each elevations orientation for best natural light during the day requires minor, interior lighting usage. We also used many sustainable, high-performing features throughout. Our client is content with a modest increase in HVAC bills given the amount of new space provided. She also mentions often that her neighbors love the house too.
