Growing families can quickly outgrow the homes purchased when the couple was just a twosome. In Seattle, Shed Architects designed a master suite addition for a family of five that was looking for a little extra space.
In the mid-1990s, Damon and Claudia Smith purchased a two-level, three-bedroom house, built in the 1920s, and restored it to liveable condition to make it their home. Over the next decade, they expanded the family to include three children and two dogs and in 2006, decided it was time for thir house to grow, too.
