Marquette Second Story Addition

A family of 5 expand their small ranch home for the long term with a new second floor.

A 3 bedroom 1 bathroom single-story ranch nestled in the heart of Madison’s beloved east side was quickly becoming too small as the family’s 3 children started to grow. With neighborhood kids ringing the doorbell calling to play, walkability to grocery stores, and the proximity to east side festivals – the family couldn’t bear to leave their close-knit community. They chose to invest in their home and expand their space with a new second story.

Adding a second story is no easy feat – it requires a thoughtful design and in this case, included completely re-imaging the first floor. Having worked with TDS previously for their kitchen remodel, these past clients knew who to call.

The second-story addition included 4 bedrooms, a full bathroom, and a small common space for gaming and movie nights. Relocating the bedrooms upstairs allowed a small 1st-floor bedroom to become a stairwell to the upstairs and a much-needed entryway/drop zone. The former living room became a real dining room that fits the whole family and guests, and the former primary bedroom became the first-floor living room.

These updates ensure the family can continue to grow comfortably in their home for many years to come. With today’s tough real estate market and soaring interest rates, it makes sense to invest in remodeling. If you love where you live, update what you have to be what you need.

Before, during, and after.

TDS set the bar very high in a previous job they did for us so I’m not surprised that I’m having a great customer service experience on the current job we’re working together on. Alex and Christi are both very easy to work with, responsive to needs, and excellent at their jobs.
