LOGANVILLE MASTER BEDROOM AND GARAGE ADDITIONS
General Contractor: Ed Fredericks Custom Homes, Highland Wisconsin
Landscape Contractor: The Bruce Company, Madison Wisconsin
I designed two additions for this home, a farmhouse located near Loganville, Wisconsin. The trick was to keep the additions in scale with the existing house and make them look as though they could have been part of the original home, by using similar window sizes and configurations and similar details.
The first addition is at the north end of the house, next to the master bedroom, and includes a sitting / office area, master closet and master bathroom.
The second addition, at the south end of the house, includes a 3-car garage and a new front entry. The garage was broken visually into a two-story section and a one-story section to keep it in scale with the house. The two-story section has a rec room above.
The general contractor, Ed Fredericks Custom Homes of Highland, did a masterful job of replicating details from the existing house, such as the window and door head casing, water table, exposed rafter tails and patterning on the barge rafters.
The Bruce Company of Madison beautifully integrated the house into the site and its grade changes with stone retaining walls and plantings.
