2011 BIA Historic Remodel Grand Awared
To balance modern comfort with historic preservation, the key goals of this remodel were to refurbish where cost and design were effective, replicate where possible and update where necessary. Every area was evaluated to establish effective restoration costs while maintaining the historic design.Great care was taken to restore doors, windows, floors, trims, soffits and hardware to maintain the character of the home and reduce the carbon footprint of the house. When restoration was not feasible, custom fabricated doors, windows, cabinets, soffits casings and trims were created to match the existing elements. To bring the home up to code and modern energy standards, low flow plumbing, low voltage lighting, energy star fans and energy star appliances were installed. In the new 2-car garage addition, the exterior of the home was built to match the existing home by custom built soffits, identical roofing and traditional garage doors.
