Historic Italianate

This historic home in Mineral Point had suffered an ill-conceived remodel several decades ago.  The front porch was lost and a 1-car garage occupied the front room and jutted out toward the street.

The owners required an attached 2-car garage and main level guest room with bath.  My design solution includes a narrow bedroom addition, placed so that its roof line skirted past two existing windows, followed by a wider garage.  With a stone veneer foundation, matching siding, and prominent trim boards, the garage takes on the look of a venerable carriage house.

New front porch posts in the Italianate style were modeled after those found on the kitchen ell of the Gundry House, Mineral Point's house museum.
