Redefining a Ranch-Style Home: Levco’s Second Story Breakthrough

The Challenge

Our client, who is an Architect, wanted to add square footage to her home. Her lot was constrained and could not go sideways or down.

The Idea

To use bonus room trusses to create a second story with dormers.

The Solution

Levco created the space with bonus room trusses and remodeled the entire home as part of the project. Two bedrooms a bathroom and an office were added to give the family more space. The second floor has a separate HVAC system.

The Details

The small home was doubled in size and the second story now has a view of the river. The siding was harmonized, and all windows were upgraded to provide a more energy-efficient home. The home went from a modest almost flat roof ranch style to a modern style two-story home with character.
