Home Addition and Renovation
Carversville, PA

This Bucks County farmhouse needs the complete removal of all elements except the fieldstone walls and interior structural framing. Two dilapidated additions need to be demolished and rebuilt to revitalize this 19th century home with modern amenities.

The proposed design rebuilds a deteriorated front porch creating a new entry sequence into the home. Proposed renovations to the existing structure replace all windows and doors, and remove interior subdividing walls to create an open living room on the first floor. The second floor is also renovated to enlarge the two bedrooms.

An L-shaped addition embellishes the original stone farmhouse. Proposed spaces include the new entry, a powder room, a state of the art gourmet kitchen, and an open plan dining room. The center piece of the addition is a switch-back stairway connecting the floors. A master bedroom suite and hall bathroom complete the second floor addition.

The fieldstone walls will be repointed. New windows, trim and a metal roof will complete the exterior enclosure of the original farmhouse. The addition will be clad in cement fiber siding and poly-ash polymer trim. A dining room bay window and a central window wall spanning the full width and height of the open stairway help create a classic farmhouse with a contemporary flair.

Construction will commence in the summer of 2016.
