Private Residence

This private residence is a large historic farmhouse style home with the original sections dating from the 18th century with a large two storey Victorian addition.  In collaboration with John Kaufmann of Tranquillity Studio we have reorganised the kitchen area and added a new family room built with traditional carpentry techniques with exposed Bermuda cedar rafters, wall plates and wall ties and pine floors.  New mahogany window frames were constructed to suit found and refurbished Bermuda cedar sashes.

A new entertaining porch was added and new main entry with subtle welcoming arms stairs as well as back of house laundry facilities and kitchen entry areas and upgrades to bathroom and bedroom areas.

The entire project was always focused on the use of traditional construction techniques as much as possible and visually expressing those techniques and skills in the architecture.
