New tree house gives old cottage the boost it needed

This after view shows the addition above the new garage. The bright color scheme and strong vertical window shape help tie the new and old parts of the house together visually.
Architect: Lisa McNelis of McNelis Architects

Builder: Erickson Construction and the owners

Construction cost/size: $185,700/1,880 square feet

The intent: McNelis and her husband, Grant Glover, wanted to stay in their 80-year-old West Seattle cottage, but not at its original 855 square feet. So she designed a 1,025-square-foot "tree house" of an addition. The existing house became the public spaces. The tree house contains bedrooms atop a new garage and office. "Although this is my own home, in many ways it was no different than any other project where the owners include a spouse who studied art and a very opinionated 9-year-old," McNelis says.
