Greene-Pearson Residence, Abington, PA

Starting with a typical ranch home, the owners wanted not only to renovate their first floor and create a new kitchen, but add a master suite on the second floor. Since ranch style homes are often fairly deep, the seemingly low ridge actually allowed room for new space without lifting the roof.

On the first floor a small bedroom was combined with the dining area, making way for a new stairway and laundry area. The opening between living room and dining room was widened and stylized, enhancing the owner's Arts and Crafts preferences. Together with the staircase, the overall flow of the house was improved. The renovated kitchen sports Craftsman styling with a radiant-heated tile floor and soapstone counters, adding a touch of comfort far beyond the original house.

On the second floor, a shallow dormer with a line of windows and a deeper eave were added, along with a deeper gable rake and decorative brackets.  New gable-end windows and siding were painted a compatible color. A smaller "shed dormer" on the back of the house made space for a modest but comfortable new master bath, and an existing bedroom was fully renovated into the master.
