Taylored Architecture was commissioned to design an addition to a historic Victorian cottage on Round Island. Very small kitchens and limited baths were typical of these historic cottages and the owners wanted to change this. The program asked for an open plan, larger kitchen, another bedroom upstairs and one-and-a-half more baths. They also requested a new porch to the east that was more inkeeping with the historic character of the home. The living space addition is simply a gable extension with the additon of a bay window and some new dormers. The porch addition is a re-creation of the porches originally on the riverfront of the cottage as seen in historic etchings and photos that the clients had in their cottage.
