2010 Best Residential Historic Renovation

This chalet-style log-trimmed house, built in 1909, was abandoned, overgrown and badly deteriorated. The logs, window surrounds and shingles on the exterior had rotted or were missing. The house had no footing and was sitting on dry-stacked brick piers. Interiors had been torn out and replaced with 1950s type finishes. Both the exterior and interiors were restored, with the exception of the kitchen and baths, which were enlarged and designed in the original character. A stoop at the back of the house was removed and a dining porch/veranda was designed for relaxing and entertaining. In addition, an outbuilding was redesigned into a guesthouse.
