    Master Suite Addition

    When you own premium real estate or want to add significant square footage, sometimes the best strategy is to build up—master suites are a popular addition choice. A two-story addition doesn't gobble up precious lawn space, and it can provide new treetop views. This new master bedroom feels airy and private at the same time, thanks to strategic placement of windows. The bed alcove translates into a staggered exterior wall, adding depth to the facade.

    Tower Addition

    A new tower addition keeps with the character of the original home by including sand-color stucco, red-tile roofing, and tall grouped windows. Recessed entry alcoves and a slight decrease in size between the second and third levels keep the structure from overwhelming the rest of the building.
