This project was a unique project where the homeowners wanted to add a large master bath and two large walk-in closets to a second story part of their home above the garage. The homeowners’ vision was to have a “large master retreat” by taking an existing small master bathroom and a smaller walk-in closet that was connected to this bathroom and removing the wall creating a large master bathroom.
The new second story addition included the two large (bedroom sized) walk-in closets. This can certainly be an application with its own unique set of challenges but Shakespeare absolutely loves these types of challenging projects. Because the homeowners were adamant about not having a support post into their existing garage area, this meant removing the old roofline above the garage and engineering and reinforcing the existing garage ceiling area with structural engineered beams and support to carry the new second story load to avoid having the support post in the garage. The icing on the cake, obviously, was making sure that this addition does not “look like an addition” on the exterior of the home – which as you can see from the pictures below, this addition blends flawlessly into their existing home. This addition added an additional 640 square feet of living space. The homeowners are thrilled with the outcome of this project – read below the comments they sent us after the completion of their project!
From the customers
“The Shakespeare team has created a beautiful master bedroom suite for us, by enlarging and renovating the bathroom and adding a room-size walk-in closet. They also added a second huge closet for another bedroom, and renovated the second bathroom, plus they replaced the bay window in the kitchen, all at a reasonable price. Their team of specialists all did beautiful work, and were very nice people to have in our home. The daily emails were so helpful – we always knew what work would take place each day, and by whom. They stayed very close to their original schedule and left no detail unfinished. Even the township inspector mentioned to us that they do good work. We would highly recommend Shakespeare!”
