Farmhouse YellowFarmhouse Bedroom, Boston

The historic restoration of this First Period Ipswich, Massachusetts home (c. 1686) was an eighteen-month project that combined exterior and interior architectural work to preserve and revitalize this beautiful home. Structurally, work included restoring the summer beam, straightening the timber frame, and adding a lean-to section. The living space was expanded with the addition of a spacious gourmet kitchen featuring countertops made of reclaimed barn wood. As is always the case with our historic renovations, we took special care to maintain the beauty and integrity of the historic elements while bringing in the comfort and convenience of modern amenities. We were even able to uncover and restore much of the original fabric of the house (the chimney, fireplaces, paneling, trim, doors, hinges, etc.), which had been hidden for years under a renovation dating back to 1746.

Winner, 2012 Mary P. Conley Award for historic home restoration and preservation

    This bed skirt was done after our portion of the project, but in an antique bed with slats, custom bed skirts usually have slits (just as you often find at the corners of ready-made skirts) where the slats are located. The fullness of the gathered skirt disguises the break in the fabric.
