This is first week progress of a unique room addition we are doing in Bettendorf. This family was looking for a way to expand their dining room when necessary as well as having a room that provided extra gathering space and a first floor 3/4 bathroom. These pictures show the forms for the foundation and the crawl space that was dug out for under the floor.
What makes this room addition different is the roof lines that need to met up with, to tie everything together. As the pictures show, the peaks of the existing gable roofs are perpendicular to each other. Therefore our new roof must peak at a higher elevation in order to achieve the necessary slope for drainage that a shingled roof requires. Follow our blogs to see how this project progresses.
