Handcrafted Builders


The owners fell in love with a falling-down farmhouse. They wanted to retain the spirit of the original house and preserve as many materials as possible. But they also wanted state of the art modern living. The coming together of these two objectives resulted in an amazing new interpretation of a farmhouse. Materials from the original farmhouse were re-used throughout the new home . . . beams, floor boards and antique doors were restored and incorporated in interesting ways. The poured concrete fireplace wall and steel staircase created a unique take on modern rustic. And modern conveniences were incorporated everywhere — from heated floors and in-wall sound to high-efficiency HVAC, a stream-lined cook’s kitchen and spa master bath.
