Martha’s Vineyard, MA

A house built in 1740 needed renovation to rescue the structure and gently improve the house. The design intervention purposefully retained the original spirit and charm of the house.

JNA carefully replaced rotted and overloaded framing and modified the drainage to dry out the building. Additionally, we replaced the roof with red cedar shingles and rebuilt the chimney. Aesthetically and functionally the house was lightly modified overall, with greater focus in the kitchen, mudroom and screened porch. Landscape Architect Kristen Beaumont Reiman of Martha's Vineyard designed the landscape.
