Narrow house gains light, space with two-story window bay.
The narrow house, with 1,445 square feet, has an unexpected sense of volume. Windows along the second-floor living room let the owners enjoy a broad view of the city; downstairs windows light up a bedroom. The cedar-paneled living room ceiling rises 17 feet above the floor; the bay's peak has the same paneling. To create an illusion of width in the tall room, two bands of narrow windows and strong horizontal muntins dividing the glass run across the full width of the house.
Designer was Kelly Crain of Crain-Cover Architects for Ann and Ron Mayo.
