We were called in to restore and enlarge a beautiful old home west of Boston that had been left in a sorry state of disrepair. Simpy put, this house was a real mess when we started. Plumbing and roof leaks had caused major problems and all of the infrastructure was outdated.
Our crew spent a year on this property completely restoring the main main (built in 1815) and building a two story addition which connected the house to the carriage house. After carrying out some much needed structural repairs, our restoration carpenters repaired the old windows, restored interior millwork, and brought the old wide board flooring back to life. Our masons repaired the chimneys and eight fireplaces. Our cabinetmakers made new cabinets for the kitchen and bathrooms. We used spray foam insulation to make the once-drafty house extrememly energy efficient. The house now has all the charm and character of its period but has modern and functional wiring, plumbing, insulation,heating and cooling.
