Historic Winnetka Renovation

This early 20th-century colonial now sparkles with energy and feels new again.

EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS HISTORIC HOME WAS STEEPED IN TRADITION — the classic colonial lines, the center entry, the clapboard siding. Our job was to give the house a complete renovation while retaining the period feel.

Energy efficiency was a primary concern. We restored or, when necessary, replaced the original windows. We installed brand new HVAC zoning and insulation to increase home’s overall efficiency.

Without compromising the home’s architectural integrity, we expanded the kitchen, then added a family room, playroom, exterior terracing, a fully finished basement, and a mudroom for this busy family of five.
