The paint colors look great with the wood trim. What a project! Did you get an architect to draw up the original plans?

Lots of questions


Great project! Thanks for posting pics. I was so glad to see this because we are hoping to do almost the exact same thing to our ranch house this summer/fall. In fact your photos of your attic (or is it an upstairs?) remind me so much of our attic (which we intend to turn into a usable bedroom/office space). Some questions- what did you use for plans? Is there a website that will let you put in measurements to help draw one up? I tried to find one, didn't see anything. How much usable square footage approx. did you gain by doing it? How big is the dormer? Also, there would be 2-3 of us doing this, how would you rate the project on level of difficulty? I have done many home improv. projects but have never framed so we will only have 1 semi-experienced framer aboard. You have a nice house, the addition looks great!
