During this extensive home renovation, we worked with our clients to take a home that was built around the turn of the 20th century and bring it back to life. While we did add 21st century utilities and functions, we tried to keep the home authentic to the original era and design.
We added just over 400 sf, including a two-car garage, a breezeway to the kitchen, and a transformation of the attic into a third story with guest bedroom and bath. We created an all-new kitchen, including new appliances, cabinets, a large island, and a deep farmhouse sink, finishing it off with trim that matched the rest of home.
By using custom craftsmen, we were able to match to the new hand-railing on third-floor stairwell with the antique handrail (original to the home) on the first floor stairwell. We also matched the siding on the garage to that of the original home. Outside, we added a new backyard deck and a new second-story balcony.
The mechanicals and electric were updated. We refinished all the hardwood floors, and repainted everything both inside and out to freshen the space. The homeowners chose to keep the original, antique fire mantel, and it adds exquisite detail to the finished home.
