New Stairway Designed for Heights Bungalow Remodel by V. Bridges Hoyt Design

Since the attic had been just an attic, there was no stairway in the house.  I designed a new custom stairway and provided plans and construction documents for the builder to use.  Below is an image of the new Craftsman style stairway leading from the first floor library/study into the now master bedroom suite  that replaced the former attic space.

Heights Bungalow House Remodel by V. Bridges Hoyt Design

The back dormer (right side) was added to expand floorspace and headroom in the attic of this Houston Heights Bungalow. Much attention was given to designing the roof pitches, eaves, windows and trim to relate to the existing house for a seamless integration between old and new.
