The New Third Floor

One of the things that was really exciting about this project was adding a new floor.  By raising the roof a few feet, we were able to create a whole new living area.  That gave us the opportunity to add 2 bedrooms, a full bath and a laundry room.

The stairway to the 3rd floor is pretty dramatic - it has a tall ceiling that makes the space seem huge.  Nothing like the split level we started with!  

The staircase has tall ceilings - unlike the original split level

But the real difference is when you get into the new rooms.  The front bedroom has a vaulted ceiling, including a gable that overlooks the front of the house.  It's not a huge room, but it feels so big thanks to the high ceilings and the windows.  

The back bedroom is also a show stopper.

I love this new hall bathroom.  We installed a sink with a sea glass green top.

We used green glass accents in the shower, to add some design interest to the space.  

And the doorknob to the bath storage closet - is this fabulous glass pull.  I bought this so many years ago and now wish I had a lot more!!  It's perfect!

We also included a laundry room on this floor.  It's super convenient to the bedrooms and there is a nice little window the provide natural light.  

And see the light fixture?  It's from the original house.  So nice to have a bit of history there.

We made so many changes to this house, but the addition of this new floor made everything else possible!  

Pin It


  1. I've been looking forward to a peek. Love the staircase and green glass work

  2. What is the product (wood, lvp…) and name of the flooring?

    1. It’s an engineered hardwood by Johnson British Isles. I think the color is Essex. We used it in our own house as well and have been really pleased with it (it handled housebreaking our puppy with ease!)

  3. Lauren can you share your source on the iron balusters? It's a nice way to break up the wood and maintain a coastal vibe.
