A quiet and beautiful university hill historic district location home, this 1910 Bungalow was 850 SF when we started. We excavated the downstairs partial crawl space to create a full height and full footprint basement. Shoring of the existing stone masonry was required by Landmarks to maintain the integrity of the exterior veneer. Steel and stone wrapped openings were allowed in the back of the building to provide new walk out basement access for the downstairs. Interior stairwell was cut into the center of the home to create a centerpiece accent. Removal of all finishes on the interior allowed for new electrical and a new service and all new HVAC. Restoration of the existing millwork and installation of custom milled matching trim was required to integrate the new and the old in this extensive remodel. Creation of new interior master and bedroom suites, separated office and a full kitchen remodel, downstairs full kitchen, and lock off apartment. Extensive restoration of the historic exterior, landscape and porch maintained the historic appeal of the home in this desirable neighborhood.
Working with the historic landmarks board for approval and getting through the inevitable changes necessary during construction is a strong point for Milo. We have been working with committees , landmarks commissions, state historic funding and municipal historic projects for over 20 years.
