View room added on in Tucson.
Where there had been limited views from the house, 7-foot-tall windows by the couch now provide an expansive outlook northeast to the Santa Catalina Mountains. Adjustable mini-blinds control incoming light, and 4-foot-wide roof overhangs help shield the windows from the desert sun. A new deck extends from the addition over the adjacent slope.
Tongue-and-groove white pine paneling on the roof soffits continues inside to form the family room ceiling; the platform around the couch is clear redwood. A skylit well near the back corner of the addition provides extra space for displaying plants.
The expanded dining room makes the adjoining open living room and kitchen seem less cramped.
