A slideshow of beautiful one-room home additions, showing a variety of designs and styles
The architect connected this garden room to the rest of the home by removing a portion of a wall and replacing it with a wide hallway. Slate-tile flooring, banks of windows, decorative beams, and the fireplace all add architectural detail. Note that placing the fireplace on the outer wall makes venting easy.
Pendant lights and a ceiling fan dangle between the exposed trusses, providing light and air circulation without interfering with the views into or out of the oversize windows.
French doors, windows, and skylights give this addition an atrium like quality. Note the way pillars were used to support the load-bearing beam that separates the original house from the addition.
