This site presented some immediate challenges in that it was very narrow, but also unusually deep. This type of project is becoming commonplace in land-locked areas close to the city where old homes are being replaced with more upscale houses. We needed to make room for a driveway and detached garage along with a generous yard for entertaining. Very restrictive zoning laws also tested our creativity, but we exceeded expectations.
