AD&D designed this Widow’s Walk

as an addition to a beach front home in Cocoa Beach in 2011.

It ties in nicely with the house, and gives a relaxing, commanding view of the dunes and surf.

Elevation and Section Views

In the simplified section view below you will see that we used the existing foundation, and walls.

AD&D designed the observation deck so that the four corners of the cupola

aligned with the corners of an existing room below; utilizing the bearing walls, and reinforcing the exist studs.

This necessitated removing, and replacing a portion of the roof to run the posts.

This project was a lot fun to design!
