Coastal cottage makeover with vintage style in Seaside, Oregon: Old Salty

beach-house-beach-style-exterior

Emerick Architects is responsible for the renovation of this old coastal cottage located in Seaside, a charming resort city in northwestern Oregon. The original 1910 home looked like it should be torn down, instead, the homeowners saw the potential and wished to rescue this home from ruin. What this home did have, was rooms enveloped in beadboard, a large wraparound porch with plenty of charm and light coming in from all sides.

What it lacked was the coziness, structural stability, and important basics like heating and operable windows. All of that changed with a whole house remodel. The architects ensured that there were plenty of sleeping areas by adding built-in bunks and turned the attic into a new master suite with wraparound windows. Vintage and second-hand design details add an authentic patina to the house.

Above: On the second floor, the ceiling height was less than 6-feet high. There was not much potential for this space other than attic storage. After some time problem solving, the architect discovered that there was a dropped ceiling, concealing a much taller ceiling above. Strategic steel beams were added for support, along with a closet and bathroom, transforming this space into a master suite. With wrap-around windows, this space has now been dubbed the “cloud ship” room.
