Kitchen Renovation/Dining Addition/Dormer Repair

The scope of this project was to renovate the kitchen, add a 14x14 dining addition which also will house an upright piano and extend/modify the dormer to eliminate a snow buildup problem.

When we got into what should have been a simple 4' extension of the dormer we found that the dormer had been poorly framed-undersized lumber and failure to carry roof loads to the ground had resulted over 30 years into a near failure of the roof. We observed a 3" sag in the rafters at the worst point!

The finished product gives the owner a  stable and sturdy dormer, reduced maintenance, a beautiful new kitchen and a dining room space.
