new link between historic house and barn

Renovation of an historic home. An addition between the existing house and barn in Hingham's Glad Tidings Historic District created a new entry, informal living room, kitchen with cooking fireplace and pantry, and deck. The addition, with it's clerestory, provides lots of natural lighting. The client now has a large free-flowing, light filled, area to entertain that they were missing in the historic house.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Beth Woodson and Kristy Woodson Harvey added this to Classic White Clapboard Shows Timeless Charm
Shutters aren't necessarily a bad place to get creative with color, but on a classic white clapboard home, nothing looks as striking as basic black. The contrast is beautiful and the combination timeless.
Clapboard siding. Federal houses in the northern U.S. tend to be built with clapboard siding, often painted white with details like doors and shutters painted black.
Of course, this viewpoint isn’t absent from those living in the United States. Houzz user sstarr says, “Here in New England, there were many Victorian-era additions to earlier colonial houses. We don’t think that they should have respected the original style of the house, with low ceilings and small windows etc. I love modern additions on old houses. They pique my curiosity; they make me think. They represent the next step in the life of an old house.”The codes, whether in the U.S. or abroad, aren’t solely responsible for architectural continuity. In fact, Ken Roginski, a historic preservation specialist in New Jersey, believes the historic guidelines in the U.S. don’t go far enough, and can hurt historic homes by forcing them to integrate modern elements even when the designer is striving for a traditional aesthetic in tune with the original structure.

It's just a shotgun house, and could be better, but it's a mild example of how plain structures can be made better. Looks like a farm house. If you put a deep front porch with large columns, you'd have a plantation home look. That's not a lot of work or money either.
