Our happy clients have enjoyed their first summer in their new space. Renovation projects are always fun and it was particularly rewarding and satisfying to see the transformation of this house as the renovation unfolded. As always, we appreciate the trust that our clients extended to us for this project. Architecture projects involve a leap of faith which isn't possible without this trust. We work hard to see it fulfilled and love it when our clients are happy. A recent email from our client sums up her feelings well: "I LOVE OUR HOUSE….JUST LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT. I can't say enough positive about working with you two from start to finish and the final results are exactly what I envisioned and better really. Can't thank you both enough for the fantastic work and the ease of working with you. It truly was a most positive experience for us."
Construction is nearing completion on this renovation project. All of the cabinets and built-ins have been installed, including a dropped wood soffit above the kitchen island, a built-in banquette bench with wall panels and ceiling soffit at the dining table and a wall of bookshelves and entertainment cabinet in the living room. All of the woodwork is custom-made locally from quarter sawn white oak. The new flooring is also white oak with a clear oil finish. There is a new blackened steel wood storage unit and surround for the wood stove in the living room. The countertops are white marble from Vermont, being installed this week. The resulting interior spaces are unified by the simple warm palette of materials and colors and feature abundant natural light and open sight-lines. Its exciting and rewarding to see these spaces come to life. Thanks, as always, to the great craftsmen who have worked to make this happen.
Construction is underway for this renovation project on Turkey Lane. The focus of this project is the main floor of the house, including the kitchen, dining and living spaces. Existing walls have been removed and new windows added to open up the interiors, add light and enhance the connection to the surrounding country setting. Interior materials will include quarter sawn white oak cabinets, locally-sourced white marble and charcoal-gray slate.
