Project: Stone Library
Builder: Kent Webster

A mid century stone building originally built as a library. The exterior has wonderful character and we tried to maintain that while expanding the footprint and creating a new and much more energy efficient residence. New insulation is soy based foam and the heat system is a wood/oil combination boiler by Tarm with a huge water tank for thermal storage. The interior spaces are as beautiful as the view. We added a garage with a sunny room and roof deck above and a small dormer room on top of the house. We gutted the house and opened up the ceiling as shown in the third photo.
