2008 Historic Renovation

Photo by Andrea Rogg

This 1914 arts and crafts bungalow had a large attic that had never been finished. Ninety years later, the new owners decided it was time to complete the home. They outlined their plan as follows:

“We are committed to upgrading our historic house in a way that respects its architecture, and also the appropriate scale and culture of small-scale living that makes city neighborhoods so cozy in the first place. Instead of square footage, we will continue to invest in quality--quality design, quality construction, and the kind of wood detailing that made our house special when it was built.”

This project is a strong example of sustainable remodeling. During the design, much time was spent educating the client on the systems available to them and materials that would have an impact on their home’s performance and their health. The result is a project that consumed less during construction, and will consume less in operation for the years to come. After a year of operation, the house is proving to be more efficient with almost double the square footage.
