The family moving into this home needed more space than the original house could provide for themselves and grandma. A series of rambling additions was removed leaving only the original 1920s structure. To this was added 5000 square feet on 3 levels. An independent mother-in-law's apartment was located in the lower level. The goal was to create a 7000 square foot home that felt cozy. This was accomplished by the introduction of gables and different vertical planes and ins and outs.
