For the M Residence, a dovetail-corner log home, we were asked to design a sunroom addition to attach to the southeast side. The interiors of the residence are dark, and the clients wanted to bring in some of the great natural light that the house receives and to relocate the existing fireplace. For the addition, we designed a 300 SF sitting room that extends out of the dining and living room area. The addition reuses the existing sliding doors located at the east of the house, and plans to reuse as much of the material removed during construction as possible. Part of the intent with the addition was to mimic the simple yet playful roof form that the house has, and to bring more natural light into the house.
