A library, mudroom, laundry and pantry were at the top of my clients’ wish list. In this whole house renovation we created all those spaces and enhanced the master bedroom with a small fireplace. The exterior of the home got a face lift too including exterior insulation, new siding and timber framed porches.
Below are photos of the kitchen, siting room, living room, dining room and sun room in a recently completed renovation and addition project in Cornwall, Vermont. Details abound in this home and include a stone fireplace, extensive woodwork and built-in furniture. New windows and french doors take advantage of abundant natural light and stunning Adirondack views. The connected spaces contain the Owners collection of antique furniture, rugs and Asian art acquired while living abroad. The smaller images are the before photos.
The addition to this Adirondack home contains a sitting room, four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a loft; it blends seamlessly with the architecture of the existing cottage. The addition, located at right angles to the existing cottage, forms an outdoor courtyard with dramatic westerly views of the Adirondack Mountains. The design of the addition mimics the gable form and period details of the existing cottage such as the stone foundation and patio, flared shingled walls, diamond light windows and elaborate timber framed elements inside and out. The last image shows the site before the addition.
