Sitting along the Cathance River stood a small cottage with usable foundation. Although the location, so close to the water, was grandfathered, the expansion was severely limited. DMA expanded and maximized the new build to code, and increased the height to get a full second floor for bedrooms and a bathroom with a flat roof. The ceiling of the living room is higher than the open plan of the kitchen and living room, and helps break up the massing of the box.
