New two-story 1,100 sqft cottage built on a narrow lot with views of Narragansett Bay. The owners of this property wished to raze their dilapidated cottage and replace it with a new two-bedroom house. The building site was unique, it was a tight corner lot that essentially had three front yards, each with its own unique challenges. To allow the building to be compatible with the scale of the surrounding houses, a shallow sloped roof was used and dormers added to increase the usable interior space. This project required zoning approvals, CRMC approval and is located in a FEMA Flood Zone.
