Attic framing for remodel

Historic Renovation

Renovating and remodeling historic structures requires an in depth knowledge of
construction techniques of the past and can pose some interesting challenges.  We take
great pride in preserving the past as well as helping homeowners find more efficient use
of their space while maintaining their homes' historic significance for future generations.

One such project involved creating more living space

This project is a home in historic Lockeland Springs district in East Nashville.  The
homeowners loved and appreciated their homes historic beauty but needed more space
for a growing family.  By converting 900 SF of attic space into a master bedroom and
bath, sitting area and two children's bedrooms it was like giving them a new home.  Not
only did they gain additional rooms, but created more "living" space on the first floor.

aesthetically tie in the new construction with the old, we have taken vintage hand hewn logs and had them sawn
Here is a project where a conventionally framed addition has been added to a vintage log cabin.  In order to
aesthetically tie in the new construction with the old, we have taken vintage hand hewn logs and had them sawn
into a veneer that we applied over the 2 x 4 walls.  We then installed metal lathe and masonry daubing between
the logs to complete the vintage appearance.
