Sisson Carriage House
The Sisson Carriage House is a backyard retreat structure intended to complement the Owner’s main residence, foster development of the Owner’s hobbies and relieve overcrowded space in the main residence.
The main space in the house is a woodwork hobby shop and garage with accessible clearances, sight lines and power tools at convenient heights. The second floor of the house features a garage-apartment accessed by an elevator and internal stair. A new wood ramp was designed as the thread connecting the existing residence deck to the new Carriage House, resolving the difference in floor elevations.
