Watkins Residence

Sacramento, CA

Project Description

This 1930’s historical residence directly across the street from McKinley Park has clinker brick on all four elevations and a steeply pitched roof.  A master suite was created in the attic area within the existing pitch, and the addition of twin dormers on the front and the rear bring in abundant natural light to enhance the spaces.  The new brick exterior walls on the second floor matches the existing first floor and the use of thin brick veneer reduced weight and saved costs.  The first floor remodel included minor wall removal to open up the living dining and stairwell to the upstairs.  Rolled roofing to the eaves and edges was an added design feature.

The two bedroom / one bath home increased its living space into the attic area.  Two matching dormers complement the exterior on the both the street and rear elevations.  Key features are a Master Bedroom Suite with a whirlpool bath and circular shower made entirely from glass block.

Total existing square footage for of residence:  1586

New second floor additional square footage:  1185

Total new residential square footage: 2771
