Home Renovation with Addition
Renovations on a log cabin featuring a new woodshed addition and stonework.
The clients for this job bought their dream home overlooking a beautiful apple orchard knowing full well that the house was going to need a lot of work. The original log cabin was in good shape but the recent addition was suffering.
We removed all of the windows, re-framed all of the openings to fit their new energy efficient Marvin Integrity Windows and Therma Tru doors. The addition was also poorly insulated and in some spots missing it altogether so we filled the wall cavities with dense pack blown cellulose. The exterior was originally sheathed with pine boards that had been painted black and had unsurprisingly cupped and twisted to the point that most small to mid-sized animals could find an easy entry into the wall. These boards were removed and we re-sided the building with cedar shingles. As a finish, we built a timber frame woodshed on the side of the addition and had local stonemason Aaron Rutz lay the stone floor. Last we heard, the clients had their plumber run some pipes so it can double as an outdoor shower in the summer.
