As our 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 and American chestnut flooring as well.
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.
