The White House always had an attic, but a full third floor was not created until the Coolidge Administration. When problems with the roof structure were discovered, architects increased the pitch of the roof and lowered the floor to accommodate new guest and service rooms. At Mrs. Coolidge’s request a sunroom facing south toward the river was added.
