One Storey Addition in the Glebe


The 300 square foot single storey (with full basement) addition to this home in one of Ottawa’s first suburbs, allowed for more natural light throughout. The shaker style kitchen that we added was complimented by display shelving, granite counter tops and the installation of stunning birch hardwood floors. The sunken eating area features a sloped ceiling with an elliptical transom window maximizing the use of daylight. The large transom window added to the sitting area provided the ideal balance of more natural light and privacy. We added a powder room with an obscured glass window. The transom window placed above the powder room door created more light in the hallway. Angled patio doors and an exterior cedar porch, open the way to a rear yard landscaped with a river wash stone walkway and flagstone patio.
