This Cape renovation in Concord, MA created the feeling of more room without sacrificing yard. On the first floor, we removed walls and reconfigured the space to create an open kitchen, dining, and family room area. A screen porch was changed into a three season room opening off a home office. The connection to the outdoors was strengthened by adding a backyard patio deck off the dining room. At the second floor, the main section was removed and rebuilt with higher knee walls and larger dormers for additional headroom in the bedrooms and bathrooms. A new roof with insulation was installed to protect against ice dams.
