Reiter Architecture & Design
The renovation of this mid-1980's Cape Elizabeth home was for a family with three young children. It focused on renovating three main areas: the kitchen, which was a dark and gloomy space with little natural light; the attic space over the garage, also very dark and limited in use by the existing roof shape; and the most-used entrance of the house: a mudroom connecting to the main house and providing access to the rooms over the garage. Other renovations included the master bathroom, and 1st floor powder room. The newly-created space over the garage required a large gabled dormer on the driveway side, and long shed dormer on the backyard side of the former attic. In addition to being a playroom and media room, the new space also includes a large, sunny guest room, full bathroom. and special “perch” at the top of the stairs. The new mudroom includes custom storage cabinets and a special place for the family dog!
