This is my design proposal for the task of “California Beach Home Addition”.
In compliance with Your description a second story was added above the front of the house as well as a covered deck between this structure and the existing second story in the back. A large new living room is formed on the 2nd story above the two downstairs bedrooms, which You can reach via a new spiral staircase, formed where the current living area is. The new staircase adds more representativeness as it is the first thing one sees as he enters the house. Furthermore its large panoramic windows allow more natural lighting into the current dining area.
The new upstairs living room is open and bright with panoramic windows looking at a beach and sea view. The new wooden roof construction is visible and painted in white and thus adds a California beach style feel.
The covered deck (lanai) can be reached from the new living room via large sliding glass doors, which incorporate the inside an outside areas. On the deck there is new large fireplace with incorporated cupboard and shelves, which has a panoramic view towards both the Northeast (town) and the Southwest (beach and sea).
The whole of the exterior is covered with white wooden siding which complement the existing one. At the front 2nd story windows and the at the deck railings there are incorporated decorative flower pots, which, in addition with the white siding give the house a traditional look.
