The first-floor interior walls needed to be removed to create an open space, which contained supply ducting for the second-floor bedrooms above. The supply ducts in the basement next to the washer went up through the closet on the main level and up to the second story.
We creatively rerouted the existing air supply ducts across the home in order to maintain proper air flow and maximize the size of the shower in the new primary bathroom.
In order to create a playroom in the unfinished basement, we relocated the washer and dryer into the new addition.
To keep costs down, we looked for a way to preserve the existing plumbing connection. The sanitary lines were creatively rerouted for the new laundry room to connect under the existing wet bar. This allowed us to avoid disturbing the existing basement bathroom where the plumbing stack is located.
Finally, an existing bedroom egress window needed to be preserved to meet code requirements, and the new addition roof needed enough slope to maintain warranty for the shingles. Our production team was able to adjust the roof framing and wall heights to meet both requirements.
