A Home with History

Weston, CT

The structure was originally built in the 1800’s as a cow barn and repurposed for use as a home in the 1950’s by a Broadway set designer. Back in 2003, when we expanded this converted barn-home with Douglas fir timbers, Eileen’s twin sons were only a year old.

An email came in recently from Eileen, who shared this photo of the well-loved family home with us. Her sons, now college age, had recently moved out of the house. For us, the raising feels like it just happened yesterday. It was a reminder that when we build a house, it is more than just shelter; it is a place where kids grow up, families bond, and memories are made.
