 By adding a partial second floor we were able to accommodate a master suite and a second bedroom upstairs.  The entry sequence was a challenge because we needed to get to the front entrance from the driveway, which had several feet of elevation change.  To reduce the sense of climbing to the entry, we terraced the front walk and dropped both the porch and foyer a couple feet. A large mudroom was concealed behind panels off the front entry foyer.  The clients came back a year later to renovate the kitchen to match the rest of the house. (A project that seemed to be too much as part of the original scope of work.) To bring more light into the kitchen we added a raised ceiling and a skylight.
