MERCIER FAMILY ROOM ADDITION  The client wanted to add a small addition to their home in historic Newport. The addition is a family room with a cathedral ceiling, hardwood floors, a gas fireplace, and cedar shingles on the exterior. JPS worked diligently with the client on all the design choices before starting construction. Due to the location, the design had to be approved by the historic board of Newport. JPS attended the historic district meeting with the client and provided all the materials necessary for the approval process. The addition also needed to be approved by the zoning appeal board because of its size. The design was approved by both boards.  PROJECT TYPE:  In-House Design
