Rhinebeck Residence

This renovated farmhouse sits only blocks beyond the town proper but feels a world away.  As it was enlarged to fit a more modern lifestyle it was also examined to see what original elements could be salvaged, not much was left to save. A new front entry and full width back porch were added along with new windows, doors, siding, roof and trim.  The original interior details had all been lost so elegant trim work, paneling, doors & hardware were added throughout.  A new kitchen & bathrooms were designed and built to suit the house and client's requirements. A dominant, rather eclectique yet elegant twenty foot asian inspired built-in cabinet was added.  It was designed to house a large TV with a sliding screen to cover, AV equiptment, yards of books and collectibles.  Textural grass wall coverings were applied to the back wall of the cabinetry and front sliding screen.  Other aspects of the project were, selecting interesting lighting, dramatic paint colors, wall coverings, cork board, tiles, faucets & fixtures, custom cabinetry, hardware & flooring.  Of course at the same time new mechanicals, HVAC and radiant heat were all being installed. This modernized, late 1800's farmhouse was then filled with eclectic furnishings and art that represented my clients years of collecting furniture and objects they loved.  Many furnishings were reupholstered and re-finished at the end of the project and after photography.
