The Farm! The words say it all. All wrapped together in one timeless place are the farm house, huge pine trees, fences, an expansive field, and outbuildings from times gone by. This house was hidden under years of neglect, unwarranted additions, and steel soffits and siding. It required a complete interior gutting down to the bare studs, allowing for rewiring, new insulation, and the opportunity to inspect walls in areas that may have had prior ice dams or leaks around windows and doors.

Beneath the surface, initial evidence revealed a 1920s cottage style home with hints of craftsman brackets and siding, wide frieze boards, one-by-ten fascia with exposed rafter tails; all signs that this once was a magnificent house. Upon removal of the steel siding and metal soffit we discovered four-inch beveled siding, something to behold. We created a porch feel by adding a stone fireplace and replacing windows to fit existing sizes. We created an open expanse from the kitchen to the four-season porch by removing the wall that separated the kitchen and the porch. The fireplace can now be enjoyed while dinning in the eat-in area.

The care taken to create proportion, texture and style is now evident at The Farm House. Grandt Builders, LTD took it from plain, cramped and boring to simple, rustic and modern. Upon a visit, your minds-eye experiences this, looks at it in wonder, and smiles. Perhaps you have a project like that of The Farm; a cabin or a house with great potential and in need of renovation.
