Among exciting publications for the year, we are pleased to announce that a historic renovation with a modern barn addition that we worked on and built is featured in Traditional Home Magazine! Preserving the original, traditional elements of the home and property presented itself as a challenge that we were eager to tackle and the article recognizes that it was no simple task:
“In order to make the house workable, they needed to increase the number of bedrooms and square footage considerably. The challenge was how to do that without spoiling the historic and rural qualities of the property… [it] was carefully renovated, right down to the foundation. Original floors were refinished and plaster ceilings were removed to expose the rough-hewn floor joists. ‘I love old houses,’ Patrice says. ‘Retaining the old house and as many old elements as we could was very important to us.’”
Maintaining the integrity and history of the house was important to us too! We were so thrilled to work on this project and read the Lovato family’s story revolving around their Cape Cod residence in Traditional Home Magazine.
