It is not uncommon for our clients  to ask us to add additional rooms or outbuildings to their property, but it is unusual to work on a home more than a decade in the past then have the current owners ask us to expand the home even further.  That is exactly what happened with the ‘Country Lane Home’.  An earlier kitchen and family room renovation was expanded when we added living space and guest quarters and porches to this beautiful farm house.  There is a pleasant continuity between the old farm house, the earlier renovations and the latest additions.  That is as it should be in my opinion.  It starts with respect for the carpenter architects who built this home in the 1800’s and extends to the thoughtful owners who cared about the details.

We should all be so lucky as to have an old renovated farm house on a country lane.
