Historic Winnetka Restoration

An early 20th-century colonial now sparkles with energy and feels new again.

Everything about this historic home was steeped in tradition – the classic colonial lines, the center entry, the clapboard siding. Our challenge was to give the house a complete renovation while retaining the period feel.

Without compromising the home’s architectural integrity, we expanded the kitchen, then added a family room, playroom, exterior terracing, a fully finished basement, and a mudroom for this busy family of five.

Energy efficiency was a primary concern so we restored or, when necessary, replaced the original windows, installed brand new HVAC zoning and insulation to increase the home’s overall efficiency.

Breathing new life into a well-loved family home is one of our greatest pleasures.
