UNIQUE DESIGN CHALLENGES
The septic field came into play when preparing the new addition. It is located in the back portion of the property, which impeded and restricted how far SDB could build. The ground surrounding the addition also had to be tapered and adjusted, but since an existing pool and patio were to remain, the designers and production team had to integrate the addition with the existing hardscaping.
The new roof posed a design challenge as well. The client’s primary bedroom features a balcony and windows overlooking the pool, and they did not want the addition to impede their view. The problem was solved with a flat roof over the addition.
SDB needed to blend a thickened masonry wall into the design to maintain the continuous and clean appearance of the pool room. The thick wall was turned into an extended sill that blends in nicely.
The existing deck was also an issue. It was created from a premium product and the clients were hoping to re-use at least a portion of it in the remodel. At first, SDB tried to preserve a portion of it, but nothing worked with the design. The original deck was ultimately replaced to blend seamlessly with the new addition.
As a result of this fabulous addition, these party-goers now have a beautiful, functional area for family reunions, get-togethers, and gatherings of all types.
