A Littleton Pop Top

If you’ve ever driven around Old Littleton, you’ll notice the charming and quaint architecture of bungalows built in the 1920’s. D Enterprise recently completed a pop-top addition to one of these bungalow homes, originally built in 1923. The home was a single story with approximately 1100 sqft. The intent of the Owner was to preserve the original bungalow character of the home while updating the interior and to ensure that the home after the remodel still fit in with the existing homes of the neighborhood.

The challenge of the project was to maintain the original floor plan while adding the additional space needed. This was accomplished with tasteful ‘bump outs’ and a second-floor addition; these alterations gave the existing floor plan an open yet distinct feel in each room.

Special care to get the details right was taken in a variety of ways with this project. Specifically, in preserving the original floors and refinishing them to show their former glory. The original cabinetry was salvaged for re-use. Also, the existing trim throughout the house was maintained—a distinct nuance of 1920’s craftsmanship—and then used as the model for crafting the new doorways and walls created in the remodel.

The completed project shows a very different home with a total of 2400 sf and no obvious sign of an addition.  The home looks as if it could have been in the neighborhood since 1923!

A Restoration in The Highlands

If you’ve ever driven around Old Littleton, you’ll notice the charming and quaint architecture of bungalows built in the 1920’s. D Enterprise recently completed a pop-top addition to one of these bungalow homes, originally built in 1923. The home was a single story with approximately 1100 sqft. The intent of the Owner was to preserve the original bungalow character of the home while updating the interior and to ensure that the home after the remodel still fit in with the existing homes of the neighborhood.

The ornate detail of the gables was hand-crafted by our own team of carpenters to match the original.

Turned porch posts were shipped in from a custom supplier and the scallop and shingle details in the gable were provided locally.

The final touch was the selection of paint colors to bring this beauty back to life!

Custom Timber Frame Homes

Are you considering building a custom home?

Many people don’t realize that there are options beyond the traditional method of “stick building” when it comes to building your future home. Typically, the method of construction is something that you and your architect decide on depending on the look, feel, and efficiency that you desire.

D Enterprise offers a method of construction that is centuries old but holds distinct appeal for building in the 21st century, Timber Frames.

 Timber frame building requires less energy to heat and cool, has a longer life, and is more sustainable for the environment on top of being simply beautiful. Home designs of timber frames seek to reflect artistry and the high-quality craftsmanship, in accordance with the style's long history of tradition.

The biggest difference in a timber frame building versus traditional construction is in the timbers used and the method of joining. The timbers are larger to accommodate the series of well cut, tight-fitting joints, which are pegged together with oak pegs and traditionally, no hardware is used in the assembly.
