Second Floor Addition – West Chester

Below is a project Smucker Brothers Construction completed in the spring of 2013. The home owner had an idea of how they wanted the end result to look. We listened to their ideas and were able to create a really nice second floor addition. With the existing garage, we made an open foyer and dining room. The new front porch and additional space really makes a huge difference to this house!

During the project, we removed the entire existing roof and built a complete second floor over the house. This was challenging on our end, as we had to keep the first floor and finished basement from getting wet. To complete this task, we did a section at a time and covered up every night. Although we experienced a couple of spring storms during the project, we were able to secure everything properly and had no damage from the rain.

This involved removing our present roof entirely, building a knee-wall raising the height of the house one-foot and then building a new roof six-feet higher than the old roof. Building dormers in the roof they were able to construct five rooms, adding a new floor to our house. I was very impressed with the engineering and use of pre-fabricated beams to construct the new floor on the house. Mike Smucker led the construction with a regular crew of six skilled workers. Very dependable they always arrived on time and it was a pleasure to watch them work. The result is a beautiful home.
