The renovation of a 120 year-old farmhouse on the James River just South of Scottsville, Virginia. The footprint and profile of the house were preserved while the interior was completely gutted and reconfigured. A new, more modern version of the house was created with three fully restored fireplaces, a central spiral staircase, a vaulted master bedroom ceiling, a luxurious master bathroom, built-in shelves, an additional 17 windows and more. The house was lifted and all foundation and first floor lumber was replaced in addition to structural reinforcement of the walls, second floor and roof. The house was fully insulated and sealed to minimize sizing for new mechanical systems and an on-demand hot-water heater was installed to reduce energy consumption. Natural materials were used as much in possible including new natural pine siding, hickory first floor, restored heart pine second floor, Pennsylvania bluestone patios, mahogany spiral stair and more.
