Location: Powder Point Cottage, Duxbury, MA
Project File: A summer cottage that had been in the family for decades needed serious help, as it was the ugly duckling of the neighborhood, and had no foundation. The entire house was shored up while a new foundation was built underneath. A kitchen addition, entry portico, master suite addition and carriage house style garage were added in two seperate renovations. Most of the rest of the house was reconfigured but many features such as the antique fireplace and antique pine panneling were saved and added to. The end result is a charming country cottage that retains much of the feeling of the original cottage. A whole house renovation of this complexity would not have been possible without the dedication of the owners to saving many parts of the existing cottage.

The antique fireplace remains, as well as much of the original pine panelling. The patina on the new pine was matched to the old so well it is impossible to distinguish the new from the old
