We asked Keith Allen to do the impossible: preserve the sentimental value of a forty-year-old, 1,200 square foot farmhouse, while building a modern 4,500 square foot home around it. It was nearly mission impossible.
First came detailed planning: three equal master bedrooms, a modern kitchen with 10-foot ceilings, upstairs bedroom lofts for children, all while preserving the original cedar-lined great room.
Next came significant engineering: supporting beams for walls that were far from square. Then the management of a series of subcontractors as the modern home magically took shape.
The result: a beautiful modern home fully reminiscent of the great family and party time that had happened over the years. We can only marvel at the vision, the attention to detail, and the character that Keith brings to his projects. Mission accomplished!!
