Challenge: Design & Build In-Town for a Historic Neighborhood
- 2300 sq. ft. Living,600 sq. ft. Guest House
- Historic neighborhood
- Reclaimed wood and stone from original home
Kogan Builders’, Chris Dale, spent much time with the city to determine if the original home was salvageable. Everyone decided that starting from the ground-up was the best decision and the results speak for themselves!
Complex roof lines and dormers create architectural interest both inside and out, and adds to the spacious feeling in only 2300 sq. ft. of living space. Skylights throughout the house brighten the kitchen, hall and living room. Reclaimed wood salvaged from the existing shed on the property provide the material accents for the custom-made sliding barn doors and interior siding details.
Bright and airy, the open floor plan downstairs flows from dining to kitchen and living room. This home isn’t trying to be a dark Victorian replication, but an updated urban take on historic downtown. Homeowner, Michelle, emphasizes her design preference of “eclectic” – a blend of rustic accents offset by clean, white lines.
