This home sits on landscaped property on the north bank of the Columbia River.  Built at the turn of the last century it has been well kept and thoughtfully renovated by the owners.  The final bit of work was to turn an upstairs broom closet, no wider than half a broom stick, into a functional modern bathroom with historic touches.

A new dormer was built to match the existing one at the front of the house.  Into this dormer the new bath was built to provide views over the lovely yard and down to the river.  Natural light and colors bring vibrant life into the room and also help to ventilate the space.

Interior hallways and doors were re-configured, hard wood floors patched, and wood trim replaced or restored.  Period details from lamps, light switches, and door pulls were used to maintain the home’s period charm.  The success is revealed when visitors fail to notice the addition at all, while the home owners find the new space useful and beautiful.
