This is a fun project it terms of the local code requirements in the town that was the center of the Sandy Super Storm! We determined to lift the existing house and move it more towards the street so that the new 2nd level terrace could be at the same level as the kitchen, and still fit with-in the new lot set back lines, which had changed here since Sandy! To get to the upper living areas’ you enter a front covered porch to the left of the garage; go inside the house and walk up the new three story staircase. The upper two levels remained largely unchanged; with the exception of opening up the new upper (living) area up to the new 2nd floor excellent views of the bay!
