The clients fell in love with the property, a half acre on Sleepy Hollow creek. The house was very tired and suffered from a series of poorly planned additions over its sixty-plus years. Though they were soon to become empty nesters, they wanted to create a family retreat that would draw and accommodate their kids and eventual families.
They came to us with the desire to remodel, but is was very clear that their program would never fit economically with the existing structure. This is not uncommon, as constantly changing building, structural, energy, and green codes, as well as technology and design considerations, have rendered development from the post war era obsolete.
