Homeowners Want Historic Home with Modern Twists
This 1906 three-story Colonial Revival home had seen a few modern improvements over the years, but like most historical homes, the small secluded kitchen didn’t serve the owners’ lifestyles. The previous enclosure of the back porch-turned-family room created a traffic flow problem through the kitchen.
Modern Life in a Historic Home
The homeowners wanted to make the family room and kitchen one open space, but the 18” thick structural brick wall stood in the way. We assured the homeowners that it was just a physics problem that could be solved. The objective was to master this engineering feat while keeping true to the home’s historical architecture.
