Named Best Traditional Home 2018 by Fine Homebuilding Magazine, this 2,700-sq.-ft. Greek Revival residential farmhouse rests on a highly visible thoroughfare lined with historic homes of all styles. Prior to RBF CoLab’s involvement, the owners had invested years of extensive restoration efforts into this home only to see it come to a tragic end when a devastating fire destroyed the house beyond repair. The unfortunate incident ignited a renewed passion within the owners to rebuild their home with the same degree of care and craftsmanship they had put into the original restoration.
Although they did not anticipate a total rebuild when they approached RBF CoLab to help with the new project, the structural damage caused by the fire left no other option. The new build offered a unique opportunity to carefully reconsider the design, and to introduce modern conveniences and building systems into a traditional style home.
