2013 Residential Historic Renovation - Co-winner

This is the complete remodel of a 9,800 square-foot historic home, originally built in 1914. From the 1960s until 2008, the home was used as a recreational senior day-center. The current owners purchased the home in 2009 with the intent to remodel it and return the home to single-family use.  The challenge was to keep the connection to the past while making a comfortable living space for the future. The original blueprints and specifications were in file at the state library, and were used as a guide during the remodel process and in the planning for the new addition. Repairing and reusing as much of the home as possible was important, as was matching the original finishes and architectural elements.
