The owners wished to make necessary repairs to allow for three season use, while keeping the original charm of the cottage; like this cook stove with a full scuttle of coal beside it.
A new laundry with built in cabinetry was created; carrying over the rich wood tones and pale summer greens used throughout the cottage.
Renovations included a new foundation, windows, wiring, plumbing, structural steel to strengthen its old bones, and insulation blown in from the exterior. New wood shingle siding and roofing completed the work. Finally, a garage was built to buffer the property; complete with a workshop and a guest suite upstairs.
The master bath with raised panel and pocket doors makes good use of the space. A separate clawfoot tub and subway tile shower enclosure completes the luxuriousness of the marble accented bath. Details abound in a careful balance between old and new.
