Historic Renovation and Addition

Ashland, Virginia


One of the oldest homes in Ashland with a poorly built addition, fallen in disrepair and partially destroyed by termite infestation, was renovated and added on to accommodate modern family living.  The existing addition, poorly insulated and damp from proximity to the ground, and built in violation of contemporary setbacks was demolished.  The existing historic home was gutted and rebuilt extending its volume to one side and adding a two story addition to the rear within the proscribed setbacks.  The new home features an open kitchen / living area, butlers pantry, and dining room in the first floor addition. The original living room with the original fireplace became an office or den and a bathroom and utility room was added to the rear.  The original entry and stairway were preserved.  Upstairs, the original bedroom and fireplace were renovated.  Another bedroom and bath was added along with a new master bedroom, en suite bath and wardrobe, and a new laundry. The new front porch, side, and rear door canopies were constructed exactly as designed.  The exterior is prefinished Hardieplank siding and the roof is a commercial standing seam prefinished metal.
