Second Floor Addition to a One Story Cape Style Home

The second floor was framed and weather tight in one week, completed in about 2 months.  Here is a link to a blog the owners kept.   The new second floor consists of three bedrooms including a master bedroom with vaulted ceiling, a new full bathroom with separate toilet and tub room, new high efficiency central HVAC and hot water heater,  r19 walls and r30 roof. 

A second phase for the project included gutting and re-configuring the first floor of the house, with significant energy enhancements and an entirely new floor plan, yielding larger island kitchen and enhanced entry and connections to the rear yard.
