An extensive renovation of a drafty 1930’s home, this project includes multiple energy-efficient features working behind the scenes.  This Arts-and-Crafts design mixes curved lines with triangular gables, and combines shingle with stone for an asymmetrical composition that engages the eye. Meticulous space planning and built-ins enabled better flow and more efficient space, while only 800  sf was added on.
