Historic Burlington Bungalow

This project in the Sister’s neighborhood was a substantial rehab of a 1940’s era catalog house.  The focus was on renewing an outdated kitchen, adding a dormer to the back side  to accommodate a more generous bathroom and providing more headroom and closet space in the second floor bedrooms.  The front entrance stairs were rebuilt to create a safer entry stair.

I increased the overhang on the roof from a scant 4″ to a more generous  12″.  That change, along with the standing seam roofing, gave the house a much more substantial appearance from the street and helped reduce the ongoing basement flooding.
