The 1775 Home had undergone several renovations since it was built by hand by its original owner, Joseph Wheadon, but had been almost untouched since the 1940s, and it was in desperate need of help. With permission from the zoning board, the interior was transformed into an open, modern living space with a focus on bringing the outside in, but kept the street facing sides of the home historically accurate. Using all the same materials they would have originally, including stone, wood and metal, it was made to look as it would have had it been properly maintained over the last 200 years. A completely open interior layout was created with a U-shaped floor plan in the back that includes two wings of floor to ceiling glass wrapped around a patio. The whole concept was to be a connected to nature with as many environmentally conscious building decisions as possible. The master bedroom’s floor to ceiling glass wall gives stunning views of the countryside, and behind the bed is a feature wall created with the floorboards from the original home. The yoga room, with windows on all three sides, faces the meadow and can be used for anything, but perhaps its greatest purpose is appreciating the natural beauty of the outdoors.
