Goal: Restore the owner’s childhood home to its former glory.

Challenges: This 1920’s property had the typical problems of one that was used as a rental for decades, including extensive termite and water damage. The owner desired a modern kitchen and family room layout, and our goal was to preserve the historic character with a “green” renovation.

Solutions: Structural issues caused by termites and water damage were corrected, and minimally obtrusive mechanicals were installed. The kitchen was appointed with period appropriate cabinetry and new oak floors to match the refinished flooring in the rest of the house. The kitchen was joined with the family room, which now boasts a restored coffered ceiling and original moldings, which were also restored throughout the house. Windows with period details were installed where restoration was not possible, and new roofing and “Certainteed” siding were added.
