This Linwood home was charming. However, the kitchen and eating area were small and there was no media room. The program called for adding approximately 700 square feet of first and second floor space across the back of the house. Downstairs the kitchen would be tripled in size, a half bath moved, and a new den built. A small porch and mudroom area were also required. The back of the house was to become a secondary entrance from the detached garage and was visible from the street. Therefore, an entry fitting the simplified 1920s Tudor house was designed.
