North Avenue Residence

This project consisted of a functional and aesthetic "face-lift" to an existing residence. The Owner had recently purchased the property for its location and amenities, but desired a completely different look and feel. Roof forms were modified and replaced to provide generous overhangs, with knee braces, fancy cut exposed rafter tails and gentle swoops in the manner of high quality craftsman detailing. New shingles, siding and trim above a natural stone wainscot were installed over exterior insulation to improve thermal performance and comfort. All doors and windows were replaced to match the character and further improve energy efficiency. Interior trim and cabinetry were replaced with quarter sawn oak detailed to enhance the craftsman character and transoms at windows to the entry porch were completed with stained glass.
