Andrea has been instrumental in curating the interior of the home and shared with us some of the changes that have been made to the centuries old structure.
“When it was reassembled, the 2nd floor was removed and the original floor joist were moved up to the new vaulted roofline where they became decorative beams in the grand room with a 2-story vaulted ceiling. A large masonry fireplace was built to anchor room. The original window and door openings were maintained and fit with new Pella windows/doors. “The old cabin” is the heart of the house with a large seating area around the fireplace and a large dining area with French doors opening into the wrap around porch. A large cased opening was cut into the side wall of the old cabin leading to “the addition” which consists of the kitchen, laundry, mud room, bathrooms, bedrooms, media room, wine room, and wet bar. Materials & design elements throughout the old cabin & the addition were thoughtfully planned to blend the old & the new seamlessly! There is no Sheetrock as it would not have been used at the time the original cabin was built. We chose a plaster treatment for the walls in the addition, that mirror the color & texture of the chinking between the logs in the old cabin. Ceilings throughout both the old cabin & addition are cedar tongue & groove planks, and floors are wide plank reclaimed heart pine. Reclaimed bricks were used in place of tile on the mudroom floor & kitchen backsplash. All custom cabinetry is made of pecky-cypress. The kitchen cabinets were painted to give a modern twist to a traditionally rustic material. The kitchen island is caped with a honed stone too that “waterfalls” off each end giving it a sleek silhouette. Classic furnishings are paired with sleek materials like lucite & leather creating a sharp contrast between the rustic elements of the architecture and the clean lines of the furnishings to create a timeless aesthetic.”
Doesn’t it just sound lovely? Andrea and her team are working tirelessly to ensure that this family will spend years in a space that fully embodies their ideals and tastes.
