Country Charm had been in the dream stage for a couple of years. The previous home, while nice and not that old relative to most lake cottages, was a modular home. The layout was not ideal, the rooms were small, and the current owners were experiencing a growing family, so more space was desired. Some investigative work by the owner revealed that the existing foundation was adequate to support a new, 2-story VWUXFWXUH7KDWZDVVLJQL¿FDQWLQDOORZLQJWKHPWRPRYHIRUward with plans to rebuild on the existing footprint. The existing home was dismantled by hand so as to not damage the foundation. A new concrete slab was poured in the crawl space to allow for a more climate-controlled space. Then began the re-construction of the new home. 7KHQHZKRPHFRQVLVWVRIDODUJHRSHQ0DLQ/HYHOÃ&#x20AC;RRUSODQZLWKYDXOWHGFHLOLQJVDOORZLQJIUHHÃ&#x20AC;RZIURPWKH/LYLQJ Room to the Kitchen to the Dining area, all with spectacular views of beautiful Lake George. The kitchen has custom Main Level Second Level cabinets with quartz countertops, a large eat-in island, and a custom built-in banquette. A large Master Bedroom with a semi-private full-bath is also located on the Main Level. 8SVWDLUVWKHUHLVDVHFRQG0DVWHU6XLWHRYHUORRNLQJWKHODNHZLWKKLVDQGKHUFORVHWV7KHUHDUHDOVRWZRÃ&#x20AC;H[VSDFHURRPVIRUVOHHSLQJ H[HUFLVLQJRUDQLQKRPHRI¿FH7KH\DUHVHSDUDWHGE\D-DFNDQG-LOOEDWKURRPVSDFHZLWKVHSDUDWHYDQLW\DQGVWRRODUHDVDQGDVKDUHG shower room. The Garage is oversized in depth and height, maximizing the storage capacity of the home. Outside there are large covered porches on both the road and lake elevations, completing the charm of this modern farmhouse design home.

This project embodies the vision of the most recent generation to own and live in this 150+ year old farmhouse. The homeowners came to us wanting to bring new life to their family homestead. As we began working through the preliminary plans and preparations for the project, the homeowner often shared stories and memories of his parents, grandparents and great-grandparents from different areas of the home. The goal was to breathe new life into the home, but also maintain historical and sentimental value â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they still wanted to be able to walk through their home, point to things and tell the stories of the original pre-1900 era, the 1920â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s remodel, the UHPRGHODQGÂżQDOO\WKH renovation. The cornerstone of the project was opening up the original two-story timber-frame portion of the home, exposing the timbers and making that previously utilitarian area the central feature of the home. Although the home ZDVVWULSSHGWRWKHVWXGVUHFRQÂżJXUHG and for the most part re-built, great care was taken in preserving and repurposing YDULRXVPDWHULDOVDQGIHDWXUHVÂąWKHVWDLUUDLOLQJLVRULJLQDOWKHRULJLQDOZRRGĂ&#x20AC;RRULQJ XSVWDLUVZDVH[SRVHGDQGUHÂżQLVKHGDQXPEHURIWKHGRRUVZHUHUHSXUSRVHGWR new locations and the original 2x poplar planking that was used as sheeting on the timber-frame is now seen as wainscoting in the dining room. While the home features a one-of-a-kind kitchen, beautiful custom tile work, a spacious master suite and an abundance of custom features, the story of the home is truly what makes this project spectacular. We look forward to sharing it with you!
