THE BUILDER/DEVELOPER APPROACHED US FOR HELP, requesting we give the old house some character. We identified the existing chimney as a prominent feature that could inform new design decisions. Originally we proposed brick veneer for the 1st floor of the facade to be a continuum of the brick found in the chimney structure. However, we were happy with the builder's decision to use stone instead. We added the standing seam metal roofed porch, accent trim lines, and bluestone patio tying everything together.
