This home was built in the mid 1900's in the Salt Lake Country Club area. The construction on the home was double brick with plaster interior walls. The owners wanted to reuse all of the brick taken down during construction in the areas that were extended out from the original footprint.

The only exterior wall on the front that remained in its' original position was the living room wall located on the left side of the front elevation. The original entry was positioned on a 45 degree angle to the other front walls. This area was brought forward to accommodate a larger and more dramatic entryway. The exterior double brick bearing walls were relieved of their function by placing new wood frame interior bearing walls around the entire perimeter.

The "South Elevation (before)" drawing shows the view from the driveway side of the home. The front of the home, far left "before" drawing, is the same wall as the after drawing. From this view, the entry and kitchen additions becomes more obvious. The kitchen area uses several above cabinet transom-lite windows.
