This Gambrel style residence has been completely upgraded to satisfy todays’ standards while restoring and reinforcing the original 1885 design. It began as a Summer Cottage accessible by train from Boston, and is now a year round residence. The essence of the structure was maintained, while enhancing every detail. The breadth of craftsmanship is evident throughout the home resulting in a comfortable and embellished aesthetic.

Looking for ideas to improve my railings in a house I built & have lived in for 22 years. - Where can you purchase the glass balls you show in this picture . I am thinking of having someone change our entranceway railing just before you climb the steps to second floor . Looking for ideas so I get it right the first time . The 13 steps to the upper level only allows me to wrap carpet around the spinals . The other 12 steps to the lower walkout area the same . I am also considering changing the collar of the first two posts when you start up the stairs . So the railings would remain in the stain from original build . The spindals are white . So maybe changing the leading posts to something heavier maybe even the white shown here . »
