This colonial period farmhouse had been much altered and added to prior to purchase by our client, but the modern additions were not well planned and in need of repair. After an extensive programming phase, the decision was made to remove the previous additions, restore the original portion of the home, and build a new wing to accommodate the modern program elements. An antique barn frame was located, purchased, dis-assembled, and re-purposed as the structural frame for the new family room. A formal dining room and spacious country kitchen complete the main floor with bedrooms above, garage and play spaces below. Covered porches, both open and screened, along with open deck areas provide a variety of outdoor living spaces and a strong connection to the rural site. Traditional materials and detailing tie the new work into the restored original farmstead.
