This Old House – Additions

Bob and Sharon Brady are the original owners of a rambler on Hope Lane. They have fond memories of raising their children in West Riding and love to entertain. They always convert their carport into a porch during warmer weather, but wanted even more entertainment room.They decided to expand their dining room by knocking out the wall into the carport. Their contractor did a beautiful job of extending the hardwood floor and added twelve recessed ceiling lights. Their dining room is now a spacious 11’ x 12’ and they can still park a car on the carport.But Bob and Sharon were not done there. They had a lovely 12’ x 20’ porch addition constructed off the dining room. This porch features a cathedral ceiling, two ceiling fans, and an Azek deck (which is made of solid PVC). Steps were added from the porch to the backyard and Bob had a spacious shed built under the dining room as well. Sharon says she enjoys drinking her cup of coffee on her new porch and gazing out onto the view of the trees, stream, park and wildlife. It is truly a relaxing area to spend time alone or with family and friends.Bob and Sharon received construction bids from four contractors and decided to use Talon Construction of Frederick, MD. The entire project took three months and there were many separate inspections along the way. I asked them if the project was worth the cost and they both re-plied, “Yes!”
