Third floor addition doubles size of home
The challenge of this multi-generational remodel was to double the square footage of the home within the footprint of the existing structure, all while the family continued to reside there.
Homeworks Construction is in the process of converting the home with approximately 3,300 square feet of living space on two levels, into a three-level home with approximately 6,000 square feet, including interior and decks.
What has been the main living area, with three bedrooms, three baths, a kitchen, family room, den, and lanai with ocean view, is being remodeled and expanded. A carport has been converted into a three-car garage and the main entry upgraded with a 42-inch front door with a sidelight. From the entry foyer the third floor addition can be accessed, as well as a new home gym.
On the lower level of the 8,738-square-foot property are a bedroom, bath and small family room opening to the back yard and swimming pool.
The third floor addition will include a great room with a 400-square-foot view deck, study, master bedroom and bath, two smaller bedrooms and a second bath.
Homeworks Construction president Marshall Hickox noted, “A remodeling project of this scope requires the expertise of a contractor who is not only licensed and bonded but also experienced, one who has successfully completed similar jobs.”
“Careful planning is essential. We have seen homes where the owners and/or builders took shortcuts with the result that walls and floors crack and sag … doors, windows, and cabinets will not close or open properly. Plumbing and electrical wiring systems often have to be redesigned. The choice of the contractor is critical.”
Framing is in progress. Roofing will be the next major phase of the project. Interior work continues and will be covered in a future issue of Hawaii Renovation.
