More space was need on Turnstone Cove I, this vacation home belonging to the Architect's parents.
New designs explored the best way to add a second Bedroom Suite complete with Bath and walk-in Wardrobe.
A Garage had been added to the original house shortly after it was completed and this addition would have to work around it.
The same general scheme would be utilized with the sloping wing walls for privacy.
New work would include, a new Bedroom Suite, a new Entry, a new stair up to a new Attic, and new cedar shingle siding.

The new addition was designed to fit next to the old Bath so that the two bathrooms could share a water wall for plumbing.
Both the new Guestroom Bath and the Walk-in Wardrobe adjoined the old Bath wall.
The new Guestroom was located in front of the new Bath and Wardrobe and the Hall was extended to the front.
The Guestroom had easy access from the Entry and featured a large east-facing window for light and ventilation.
The new roof line allowed for new attic space over the new Bath and Wardrobe.

The architect designed this home as a senior project at Cal Poly from which he graduated in June of 1971.
The university's motto was "Learn by doing"... a belief that the architect has practiced all his life.
In the summer of 1971, he built this home from the foundation up and now, in 1982, he continued one more step in his hands-on education.
As usual, the whole family pitched in with the construction, Turnstone Cove II, Yachats, Oregon, USA, 1982.
Wyatt and Ryan's time would come soon enough with the final major rebuild of the house in 1999.
