2005 Best Residential Historic Renovation

This historic 1898 house was about to be torn down in order to make room for new road construction when this owner decided to save the house by purchasing it and relocating it approximately 1,000 feet from its existing location. The program called for a complete renovation including a new kitchen, new bathrooms and a new basement. The owner also wanted a screened porch and a two-story front porch that would compliment the original design of the house. The entire interior of the existing residence was stripped and rebuilt using the old materials in creative ways. The old chimneys were exposed in the attic and kitchen. These were incorporated as an integral part of the new kitchen design. Brick was uncovered and left exposed in the dining room and living room areas. During construction an old pieced of rosin paper was discovered in the exterior wall with the date of the original house and the date of renovation by the son of the original owner. This piece of rosin paper is now framed and mounted on the wall of the dining room.
