This brick home built in the 1990’s lacked a recreation area, though it did have a pool and garden around the back. We added a large play room with wet bar, shower and changing area just across from the pool, in a way that matched the building and did not call attention to itself as being new. Between the old and new building we added a built-in barbeque area, and allowed space for utilities and garden storage. Years earlier I had helped revamp the interiors; new wood floors and fireplace surround in the living room are illustrated here. Also the original building had some trouble with water penetration, and we advised and developed the details to remove all the front brick and reseal and rebuild the exterior brick walls and balconies.
