Historic Captain’s House

Download PDF

For this 1850’s historic renovation of a Captain’s house, we envisioned a worldly ship captain coming home after years of collecting and traveling.  The furniture is period, personal and modern in interpretation.  While respecting the local vernacular, we added large family areas by raising the house, building a basement recreation center and adding a double-height kitchen. Included was the renovation of a pond guest cottage and a large undulating retaining wall to counter the steep slope to the water’s edge.
