Many older and historic homes were constructed in an era when lifestyles and technology were different than today. Kitchens and baths were smaller, master suites and family rooms did not exist, and there was little connectivity between major living spaces.

Nevertheless, historic dwellings have an ambiance that cannot be duplicated easily in new construction and their materials and details often are quite distinctive. Combine these characteristics with a convenient location and mature landscaping and it is obvious why these properties remain popular.

One of our firm’s specialties is carefully upgrading and modernizing these older homes while retaining the historic character that makes them so special. We understand how to reorganize existing spaces and create new additions that respect the existing design. We know how older structures were designed and how to insert modern systems without compromising the integrity of the original. We enjoy the challenge of making old homes new for the next generation of owners.
