Cleveland Park Project Adding space for the new nanny

Your family is growing and you want to add live-in nanny help...look up instead of adding on? This family wanted to incorporate a new separate bath to go along with a bedroom and office on the third floor of their Cleveland Park home. The house had dormers on the front and both sides, so adding another rear dormer was our simplest and most cost effective solution.

This dormer is to house a new bathroom, however, after opening the floor, it required new joists for square and level, as well as previous damage remediation. At the same time, MLC Build was renovating a 2nd floor bathroom directly under the new new dormer. Stacked bathrooms, such as these, often facilitate the combined ease for running new plumbing , electrical, and in-line venting system. That said, all these mechanical must be coupled into existing systems, or, ran individually to the mains typically found in basements, which means typically open walls and ceilings on the lower floors as well.

MLC BUILD uses Benjamin Obdyke Slicker rain screen on top of Huber Zip Sheathing for moisture evaporation. To establish a strong and flush cedar shake corner weave, we used cedar material milled down in thickness to match rain screen. The cedar was pre-primed using a slow dry primer. MLC BUILD uses Boral Trim around windows and fascia, custom shaping the stock to replicate pre-existing historical trim of this 1930 home.

The dormer of this 1930 home was designed to match both size and shape of three other pre-existing dormers. The simple purpose of the dormer, amid the much larger renovation project, was to add a bathroom to the third floor.

MLC BUILD uses Roseburg RigidLam LVL, Simpson Hangers, Huber's Advantech Sub-flooring and also their Zip Exterior Sheathing System.

The dormer is almost completed, just waiting for paint.
