Ballard Bathroom Addition Ballard, Seattle, WA Residential
We expanded this bathroom and added a sewing room within the footprint of the existing house by adding dormers to the existing roofline. The owner -a fashion designer - selected the interior finishes and colors, including reusing the lath as a wall finish and using vintage doorknobs as towel hangers, a unique detail that sets this bathroom apart from others. The result is a rustic bathroom that is still bright and extremely functional. It was important to the owner to be able to maintain the charm of the original clawfoot tub, while still obtaining a comfortable walk-in shower. By expanding the home, we were able to accommodate both.
The original home had fairly tall ceilings in the upstairs, that was already home to two bedrooms and a bath with very little closet space. Our challenge was to find space for a more comfortable bath, plenty of closet space, and a sewing/craft room. The dormers were designed to mimic the aesthetics and charm of the front of the house, and to provide ample interior space.
