The homeowners transformed the existing attic space and added 800 square feet to create a spacious and stunning master suite. The addition features a bedroom, bath, and dressing area. The added space blends effortlessly with the rest of the home thanks to the use of salvaged materials and New Orleans cottage style. 2.Sitting Area
Here, a small loftlike sitting area next to the master suite overlooks the study below. The wrought-iron railing, made from salvaged materials, was designed by the homeowner and brings big New Orleans style to the tiny Texas home.
This 1910 charmer was given a second chance to shine following a major remodel. The better bungalow received a loftlike master suite addition, and the main-level rooms were revived with a New Orleans cottage feel. Here, the enhanced exterior boasts a new gallery porch that welcomes visitors, offers a comfy spot to relax, and adds curb appeal. A whimsical gabled dormer and French doors with shutters give this small home a big personality.
Before the remodel, the old home didn't have air-conditioning, so this part of the home was used as a sleeping porch on hot summer nights. Now enclosed, the air-conditioned porch makes for a perfect breakfast room with views of the backyard. The antique country French table and furnishings lend character to the room.
