Purchased as a weekend house by a Montgomery County couple, this small one-bedroom is destined for full-time residence status once the owners retire. A strong connection to outside was crucial, as was keeping to a tight budget, which meant adding as little square footage as possible. By reconfiguring a few existing areas and moving the front door we created some nice long sight lines -- many of which lead to gorgeous views. The home is now a two-bedroom two bath, with great features like a covered front porch, walk-in pantry, walk-in closet, open basement staircase, cathedral ceilings, pool, hot tub, and decks. The former owners would never have imagined that their 28' x 30' box could be reinvented like this.
