Project Spotlight: Addition in Maryland
These homeowners wanted a functional space that their parents, in their 80s, can easily access and use as a guest space during their frequent visits to their home.
By expanding the backside of the house they were able to add a main-level bedroom along with a bathroom and easier to access back-porch. The bedroom and bathroom are spacious enough to accommodate wheel chairs, with a walk-in shower, and the homeowners added a free-standing tub for their personal relaxation.
Here’s a snapshot of their remodel:
The rear addition brought the back of the house to meet the previous four-season enclosed porch, creating room for the new guest suite and a rear entry to the patio.
The wall and entry to the rear porch were removed and reconfigured into a new spacious sunroom area with a larger opening to the rest of the house – gaining greater wheelchair accessibility throughout the first floor.
The four-season patio was transformed bringing in natural lighting and a more expansive view of their wooded backyard.
The rear powder room was expanded out to create a new master bath retreat for both them and their parents. The walk-in shower is great for easy access and has a spray bar and grab bar for leashing and cleaning the many dogs they foster.
The new main-level guest bedroom with backyard views was created by extending the rear corner of the home.

Isn’t it true that when guests arrive they all seem to gravitate in the kitchen? Kids return home from school, grandchildren come to visit, the neighbors drop in… and everyone ends up wedged between the sink and the fridge. Very few cooks enjoy being confined in a tight space to prepare a meal when company…
