Staying In The Neighborhood

This homeowner loves her neighborhood. The walkability, proximity to downtown, shopping, the kids’ school is around the corner and basically, she can live her life on a bike, and not in a car. The lot? Well … everyone, including builder Bill Roth, didn’t even realize it was a lot. It looked like an orphaned piece of land attached to the existing home next door. Roth’s client, however, is a very creative soul, and saw “possibilities” where no one else did. On an airplane, with some graph paper and a pencil, she sketched out a floorplan that fit this very setback and size-constricted lot. Roth refined the floor plan to meet the client’s design goals and designed the exterior elevations. Another successful client-designer collaboration was born. The house is approximately 1,800 square feet with three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and a powder room for guests. A pocket door between the sleeping area of the house, and the common areas, affords privacy during our client’s dinner parties and game nights. It also features a separate dining room and a two-car detached garage.
