1799 Ship Captain’s Home & Guest House
On a small downtown village property, we were tasked to renovate an existing home and build a new guest house with traditional New England architecture that complimented the surrounding area. One of the challenges during construction of the main house was to convert the structure from a post and beam to a conventionally framed home with LVL joist and steel reinforcement. The temporary shoring and systematic dismantling and rebuild was an amazing feat. The finishes and featured design elements including the custom, continuous paneled kitchen, 3 unique and different coffered ceilings, and walnut finishes ranging from stairs to herringbone floors were all a project challenge. I find the best way to rise up, meet, and accomplish these challenges is through mock ups, lots of communication, progress photos, and personal investment in caring for the project.
