Years of unfortunate renovations had hidden many of the historic post and beam details that make this home unique. The homeowners wanted to restore these historic details, while updating the house with a more functional kitchen, master suite addition, in-law suite addition, and more bathrooms. The original ceiling joists, beams, and posts at the rear of the structure were exposed and a luxe new kitchen was designed to keep these members in central focus. Other historic architectural details such as original wood paneling hidden beneath layers of plaster were cleaned up and exposed on both the first and second floor. This historic renovation is a wonderful example of how preserving centuries-old architectural elements can be combined with the the modern design conveniences homeowners have grown to love.

“Our project certainly had some surprises (like most old homes do); however, Cummings Architecture + Interiors were agile and able to manage challenges both in the architecture as well as within the various city departments that required approval. We absolutely love the space. Mat and his team’s professionalism, passion, and attention to detail were first-class.”
