22130 – New ‘Country’ Over Old

/ Best viewed on a full sized computer.

The carousel below shows the entire exterior from several views; and some interior Kitchen images.

Sometimes ‘new’ is a retelling of ‘old’ but with a new twist. This owner had a problem. Her childhood home burned to the ground, the result of a lightening strike. The only part left standing was a single brick wall. Her hope was to save it and build around it, but it was not to be. It was too unstable. The solution that made her happiest was to mimic the old wall with a new one. While we were at it, the old floor plan was modernized to be more suitable to the business of family, and to running two family businesses from home – one for her and one for him.

The brick wall can be seen in the images in the carousel, above, and in the zoom-able plan-page, below.

Creating a near duplicate of the old house was easy. Bringing it up to date was a little more challenging. While the outside is almost a perfect match to the old homestead, the innards are completely different. Fresh spaces allow for ample rooms. There’s a Grill Porch where the old Wash Porch (pronounced “warsh”) used to be. The carport with its low-sloped roof repeats the appearance of the woodshed that kept stove-wood dry, back in the days before electricity and plumbing came to the farm. As for plumbing, it’s all indoors, and there’s a good-plenty of bathrooms.
