Historic Renovation – Amherst

Posted on in Completed, Portfolio, Renovations. Permalink.

This project is a complete energy retrofit and structural repair of a 1793 post & beam home with additions. Great care has been taken to choose materials that will stay true to the town’s historic regulations, the style of the home and the client’s needs. Typical to this type of project, we started from the ground up. Structural repairs were first made to the basement and existing post & beam structure. Next, attention was taken to update the home with high-efficiency features including heating, insulation and windows. Custom woodwork includes built-ins to provide storage and discreet access to the basement and wine cellar via a secret passageway. A pool house addition, field stone walls with built-in accent lighting, blue stone patios, custom cobblestone designs and 1/2 acre fruit orchard will highlight the grounds of this special home

Heat: High velocity Central Air System via a high-efficiency Buderus Boiler
Insulation: Closed cell spray foam and dense packed cellulose
Windows: Double Low-E Argon with true wood muntins
