Hanna Lynn In-Law-Suite Addition



Project #16-25, seminole heights, tampa, fl



With the main house already built, and a large garden in place for entertaining, we added a 950 SF in-law-suite with separate living space and artist's workshop/garage. The initial design was planned as a separate building between the garden and the grass swale. A revised design turned the addition along the street and connected it to the house. Large windows and glass doors capture the shared garden, and smaller windows on the streetside allow for cross-ventilation. Vaulted ceilings and open design. Style, colors, and materials match the existing house. Designed 2016-2017. Construction completed 2019.


In the Client's own words: Cathy was very professional and spent hours and kept asking questions about what we wanted. After several designs we settled on one that suited our needs best. We had had no idea about construction and Cathy was there throughout the process and kept the contractors on the plans. She measured all the setbacks for the neighbors and found a contact in the city planing department to get the plans moving forward and avoid any roadblocks. She didn’t stop there she was around for inspections at critical stages of construction. The addition is finished and I have been living in there for a year. I could not be more pleased, the space is perfect in every way. Thank you Cathy!
