Design an addition to a 19th century farmhouse to double the size of the existing house.
This house was one of the first large residential addition/renovation projects for our firm. We carefully studied the existing house to make decisions as to how to add onto it without losing its distinctive New England farmhouse character. We decided to create a second farmhouse very much in the style of the existing house but separated from it by a contemporary wing with a ridge at right angels to the existing – allowing the new addition to stand alone with roof lines matching the existing. We deliberately used the existing detailing in the addition and went to lengths to match rather than make an announcement of a new house. The effect is one of a much larger house that met the needs of our client in a way that preserved and expanded on the style of house that they loved and wanted.
