PROJECT

HIGHLIGHTS
 

As The Award Winning Beach House Retrofit Project, which is located less than a mile away, this 1,752 square-foot timber framed farmhouse will also be a working model of the ultimate green retrofit home. Beside being built in 1812 as opposed to 1932, the main difference between the two projects is that many of the finish materials are already in place. The antique post-and-beam structure itself will be exposed and all the antique hand hewn timber and 16" wide white oak flooring as well. The original cedar siding will also be revealed.

Since the design, techniques, materials, products and approach used in the project can be applied to other older homes to achieve the same environmentally sound living space, The 1812 Farmhouse Revealed project will stand, not only as an inspiration for homeowners, but for industry professionals as well. For a reduced impact on the environment, the existing building footprint of this home will remain intact. In fact, the actual living area will actually be reduced by approximately 30 square feet due to the removal of the foyer ceiling, to the upstairs vaulted ceilings.

The restored home will feature an open floor plan with a deconstructed kitchen, dining and living area (review interior & exterior 3Ds here) on the main floor, as well as a multi purpose room adorned with custom reclaimed wood barn doors. A restored stone fireplace provide warmth and serves as a central focal design element. The first level also include an antique wood bar, a laundry room/mudroom and 1 1/2  bathrooms. French doors invites the outside in, and vice versa, with Southern views of the completely private 3+ acres and to a spacious patio equipped with a built-in grill. The upper level features two master suites, one of them with an exposed brick chimney.

The farmhouse is situated in a historic section of South Salem, a sought-after hamlet of Lewisboro, a town of Northern Westchester County, NY.

"Have you ever heard of the 'Well Standard'?
It's about comfort, nourishment, lighting and mindfulness.
It's about focusing on people, not buildings; that the real role of a building is to keep us healthy, happy, safe and comfortable.
Energy is just an input, a variable; the fact that a comfortable building will use a lot less of it is a happy coincidence."
