respecting the history of a home doesn't mean freezing it in time.
Historic houses deserve this distinction because they have stood the test of time. The best were thoughtfully designed and built from quality materials by expert craftsman. The challenge of a historic renovation lies in respecting the character and pedigree of the home while integrating modern technology and conveniences with sensitivity. This feat requires expert problem-solving skills and years of experience designing and building with a variety of materials and vernacular styles - plus a deep appreciation of history.
