Text Box:

Major renovation and addition to a three story, 4,800 square foot Federal Style Residence in the historic Roland Park area of Baltimore City. The owner's desire was to completely renovate the house's interior and to add a new kitchen, bedroom and porch on the rear. This was to be done while preserving the historic look of the front facade. The Roland Park Neighborhood Association  has strict requirements in terms of preserving the original architecture of the houses in the neighborhood, and therefore, we had to work closely with them to get approval on all exterior elements of the new design.

The project scope entailed complete interior renovation, which included removal of all paint and wall covering down to the bare wood and plaster, complete electrical re-wiring, new plumbing and fixtures, adding bathrooms and a new modern "Seimatic" Kitchen.  New interior lighting was designed to fit the mood and function of each room.

Exterior work included removal of all paint and repainting all exterior surfaces, replacement of windows, repair of stone foundation and new construction for the kitchen and bedroom.  The structure sits on a small steeply sloped lot and therefore extensive terracing and retaining walls in the landscape was necessary.  We removed a garage which sat into the steep bank and saved a mature Dogwood tree which was growing into the garage structure. The client was very particular about quality.  Therefore, we worked closely with them and material suppliers to specify the correct  materials, equipment, and products.  In particular, one of our tasks was to provide the quietest HVAC system possible.
