Stone Barn Additon

Stone Barn Additon

We always love it when our former clients call us back for additional work on their homes. In this case the owners wanted an open room which would be a place to play pool, entertain, and gather with family and friends. They wanted the addition to feel like a stone barn to which the main house was added, and we all agree, it really does feel like the stone addition has always been there.

    This is so beautiful, might I ask where this is? Not only is the stone addition itself gorgeous, it blends in so well with the existing home as you said. Thank you for sharing!

    The contractors name is Lin Chamberlin of Chamberlin Construction in Millerton, NY. You might look him up. He picked up samples at a local stoneyard and the owner liked it.
