David Coulson Design
Set on an expansive plateau, with much farmland and mountain views, this home is the centrepiece of a property that also features a 1,200 ft cottage, several outbuildings, a former pig barn and a paddock.
My longtime client, David Coulson Design, and his team had their hands full in this tear-down and restoration that was precipitated by several key factors. For instance, the roof had been leaking for many years, thus rotting out much of the frames. The original home was further plagued by termites, squirrels and ants, all of which were living in the roof joints!
One of the key elements salvaged in the reno was the original posts and beams that, despite needing to be capped, were painstakingly burnished and restained. They certainly contributed to the rustic, farmhouse vibe that the homeowners were looking for. Indeed, the kitchen, with white cabinetry, a blue-gray island and textured tile backsplash, sits seamlessly within the beam structure.
The results of the reno gave this home an original look but with significant, modern upgrades throughout that can stand up to the hustle and bustle of modern family life.
