This small two-bedroom, one-bath bungalow in Austin, Texas, was pretty darn cute, but just too darn small for the family of four who lives there. They didn’t want to move, though, so they hired Clayton & Little Architects to raise the roof and add a second story.
Bungalow with Second Story Addition:
Architect Paul Clayton worked with project manager Carolina Cantu to double its size by adding a 1,000-square-foot second floor:
“The original 1938 one story, two-bedroom house grew to incorporate an enlarged master bedroom and bathroom on the first floor and a new 1,037-square-foot second story that includes two bedrooms, a playroom, a utility room and a bathroom.”

Gorgeous! Love the new front door, too, which suits the house so much better.
