Renovation
Year built: 
1927

This English-style cottage blends a new addition seamlessly with the original structure.  The renovation replaces a small greenhouse with a charming vaulted ceiling addition.  Truly a small gem, the house exemplifies the owner's threefold objective: to blend the addition with the existing neighborhood, to match the detail of the original structure, and to have the addition set back so it would not overpower the original house.  Using the existing frames and moldings, custom duplicates of the original windows were made for the addition.  The copper work, hand-hewn posts, gable end, lintel, and ironwork all duplicate those found on the 1927 structure.
