Guest Suite Addition
Guest Suite Addition over the Garage
Our clients Bill and Tammy approached us to construct a bonus room above the garage for their exercise equipment with an additional bedroom and bathroom for guests. This project has a few unique challenges including installing a 2 hour fire rated wall so that their home can be considered two separate structures for the Philomath fire marshal (so we don’t need to install a residential sprinkler system). We are also keeping their existing home operational during construction including their furnace and electrical panel which are directly underneath the new addition!
“Bill and Tammy were very happy with our work on their home in Corvallis, so when they bought their home in Philomath, they asked us to create a special Guest Suite for them.”

Custom Designed Plans
After drawing up plans, our designer recommended adding 10’ on the back of the garage and mudroom to achieve their goals. This allows us to leave the current garage size as is, while providing room for stairs up to the addition as well as extra storage for the garage.
We installed tile wainscoting with a charming accent band in this water closet to add interest to this simple room and improve the cleanability.
Wood Paneled Ceiling
We added this wood tongue & groove paneling to the balcony ceiling, and it truly adds another level of beauty to this home. We love how the brown tones in the cedar complement the tones of the green exterior paint color!

“It was a good experience. We have used them a couple of times. They did very high quality work and I would not change any detail. They were very responsive. We did not really have any problems with them. They were right on schedule towards completing the project but their price was a little bit high.”
