The owners sought to renew and restore a deteriorating 1920’s two-family home and adapt it for the needs of their family. The interior was completely gutted, a new stair added, porches modified and rebuilt. New windows, siding, roof, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC were installed. A custom window seat was added and the front porch was reconstructed to take advantage of great views toward Boston.
The detached garage was also rebuilt. As part of the process, the scope of work was defined, and then pared back to essentials to fit within a tight budget, with each trade-off carefully evaluated.
