01. A comprehensive architectural alteration & 2K SF addition to an 1895 shingle style residence & carriage house on the Connecticut coast

The project consists of the total renovation, interior alteration and addition to an existing c.1895
shingle/colonial revival style residence, carriage house and grounds. The buildings and grounds had been allowed to deteriorate and were carelessly altered by previous owners, necessitating the complete removal of all interior and exterior finishes, windows, doors and HVAC, plumbing and electrical systems. The existing main stair and dining room doors, trim and paneling, rendered in oak, were restored. The majority of interior partitions were removed or rearranged. The existing centered front porch was removed and the front door was repositioned off center to allow the addition of a new kitchen and vaulted family room and bath over a new service entrance and two car garage. The original architectural forms, detailing and finishes were re-established and extended to the addition. The roof is high hipped with multiple dormers and cedar shingle roofing with copper recessed “yankee” gutters and flashing. The elevations are characterized by battering the base of the cedar shingle walls where they meet the stone foundations and flaring the walls at the window heads. Interior new wood finished flooring, trim and doors were made to match or extend the existing in the original house and to simplify and harmonize in the addition.
