Farmhouse Remodel




This 100 year-old homestead was in great shape overall.  We give credit to early framing techniques and materials.  The house itself was also sited extremely well at very near to the top of a hillside surrounded by majestic maple trees that must have been planted just after the farmstead was built.  As one would expect however, the building's mechanicals were in need of a larger overhaul.  The electric wiring, plumbing, insulation all needed updating.  The remodel included two bathrooms and we added one full bath.  We also added a sunroom onto the south-facing side. Taproot Architects along with our clients matched many of the original farm house details, fitting the home with fluted millwork trim throughout and made good use of period hardware. The new bathrooms are all comfortably-sized and beautifully appointed with new tile, cabinets and faucets.  The bathroom on the ground level is ADA compliant to accomodate older family members. We also gave the kitchen an update with newly painted cabinets and walls, solid surface counter tops and a fresh backsplash over the stove.  We even re-made the cellar door. The project came together very nicely and this home now has all of the updates it will need for its next 100 years.
