Preserve the Modest Facade

Stand directly in front of Rashida’s newly renovated house and it’s hard to tell that much more was done to it than adding fresh paint and restored brackets. That effect is deliberate, as the addition is contained behind the house and the small second story rises only past the rear of the existing roofline. The front of the house looks just as it did when it was built back in the 1890s. Setting a second-story addition back from the facade below helps minimize it.
