Residential Renovation & Addition
Markle Road Residence
Architects at LSC coordinated the restoration of this circa 1792 stone house and bank barn. The house required extensive masonry work - some stone replacement, repointing, flashing and weatherproofing. Much of the original barn siding was replaced with custom-milled white pine. The siding widths are graduated, from wider planks at the bottom to narrower planks further up. The heavy timber structure has been refurbished - many of the timbers and connections required replacement, which was done using authentic methods and wood species. The stone barn foundation walls and the retaining walls for the ramped barn entry were also restored.
