Side Saddle Berkeley, CA This project included adding a dormer for a new walk-in closet and extending an upper roof line for a horizontal addition over the existing First Floor, creating needed space to expand the Bedroom. An Administrative Use Permit was required as a result of adding space over 14′ in height above grade. We filled the ceiling cavity with spray foam insulation to allow for a non-vented cathedral ceiling assembly. A new custom French door and steel balcony create an inviting outdoor space. We added skylights and replaced the front windows in the front Home Office space. We also added two gas-fired fireplace inserts in the existing masonry fireboxes in part to allow for the extended roof line, and also for increased energy efficiency and warmth.
