Labadie Residence, Washington, DC

Project completed spring of 1992


Like my own residence in Washington, this is also a renovation and addition to a 1920’s Sear’s
“kit” house. We started with the original, 900 square-foot house and expanded to an
approximately 4,500 square-foot house. The new building works with many of the original
design elements in serious as well as playful ways which has created an essentially formal house
with an abundance of light and volume. The structure is conventional wood framing. The
exterior materials are stucco, wood and asphalt shingles.
