Before and After

Our main goal during this renovation was to update the house without making any major modifications.  

Nothing quite like a fresh dusting of snow to bring out the charm of an 1897 home.  Especially during the holidays.

Once covered in about 10 layers of wallpaper, the front entrance now has a completely new look.

Before and after view of the dining and living rooms.


The kitchen turned out even better than expected.  The vintage-style cabinets have people asking if they are original to the house.

The only walls removed during the renovation were the two that once defined a breakfast nook, which is now open to the kitchen. 

The door to the mud room was moved to accommodate the larger kitchen area.

The first floor bathroom was moved to part of what was once a bedroom with a small shower.

Guest kitchen (former dentist laboratory).  Original 1940's-era cabinets with a new double sink and Corian countertops.

Guest breakfast area/study (former dentist office) and guest living area (former dentist waiting room).

Second story view of backyard patio.

Upstairs hallway in guest apartment.
