To accommodate her growing family, designer Cindy Bleeks of Feasby and Bleeks Design expanded her 110-year-old house with a two-storey addition. See how she renovated the space to create a functional, family-friendly interior that doesn’t skimp on style.

The addition was built onto the back of the house and covered in grey Cape Cod-style shingles. A combined living and family room is the heart of the home, while a newly built mudroom and powder room are practical – and pretty – add-ons. Increasing storage space was one of the family’s main needs, so Cindy added ample built-ins and custom-built roof trusses to take advantage of the tall ceilings. A dreamy, spacious master bedroom and extra kids’ rooms complete the transformation.
