The Annex

The Annex

This small frame building was constructed in the first half of the 20th century to serve as a church in the small town of Glen Echo, Maryland. The Baptist Church Annex, as it was later called, fell into disrepair in the early 21st century when it was no longer used for worship or other church functions. The current owners purchased the property in 2013 and began the process of converting the Annex into their primary residence.The renovation work included repairing and restoring the wood frame, installing structural insulated panels over new trusses that mimicked the original trusses, installing new windows, doors, and exterior siding.
