Fisher Freeman Residence
The Owners of this classic New England house and detached barn nestled on a beautiful parcel on Route 88 in Cumberland wanted to create an informal dining and entertaining space off the existing kitchen, which would also be completely renovated. The proposed additional living space would extend to the existing barn, which would be reconfigured into a two-car garage connecting to the main house. The resulting addition also included a new entry, bathroom and stairs to the basement. Renovations at the second floor included creating a new Master Bath, reconfiguring the existing Laundry Room, and creating a new Fitness Room above the existing Kitchen. The new addition, including an extension of the existing covered porch, needed to seamlessly integrate with the existing house as if it were originally constructed in 1878. To help acheive this, many key existing exterior elements were reincorporated into the new work included moss-covered stone walls, brick pavers, granite slabs, "pineapple" detail fencing, and shrubbery. Lastly, to keep the renovation in honor of it's 1878 era, all decorative details such as the porch brackets, window knee-and-shade trim, frieze mouldings, column millwork, and interior trim were replicated to match the existing house exactly.
