A new high living room addition and stone chimney introduce vertical elements to what was a monotonous ranch style home. The tall new  living room windows are shaded by an intermediate eave that becomes a canopy over four new french doors at the dining room. The new renovation, which includes a new kitchen, brings a sense of quality and integrity to the home that the original lacked. The living room's window wall surrounds a new stone Rumford style fireplace and offers a beautiful view to the landscaped hillside beyond.
