Loft Addition Orange County, California
Laguna Niguel Loft Addition
High ceiling conversion in Laguna Niguel with vaulted ceiling is getting more than just a loft. The roof is being raised over a portion of the loft to create a dormer addition. This technique gives more headroom above and the ability to add a new egress (bedroom) window.
This particular room addition has been designed for a new bedroom with an on-suite bathroom and storage space. The storage space is literally over the front entry way below. The floor system in that space has been raised to create a higher tray ceiling (coffer) to remain over the entryway.
This project came to us as an over-sized two story addition with plans already in the city. We were able to save the homeowner several hundred thousand dollars by designing the new space as a gable dormer addition.
BEFORE - to simply add a loft addition with the vaulted ceiling would not allow for a new bedroom window. The roof will be raised for the width of the bedroom walls only. This is the technique we call, dormer addition.
