It was no small feat lifting an old home 2 feet in the air while keeping its fireplace and original fir floors in place, and, on the upstairs, reclaiming attic space to give three new bed + bath suites a little extra architectural flair.  It took a *lot* of intensive framing.   But when we were finished, the result looks effortless.  This is in part thanks to the artistic sensibilities of husband + wife duo of workshopab2c, the architect and artist behind all the details, salvaged materials, and final bits of whimsy that give the new "guest house" so much personality.  You can read all about it, and if so inspired, book you or your relatives' next PNW stay for a beachy, small town get away just a short drive north of Seattle.
