Travel Recap: A Creative Retreat
|Access to the House from the Bridge|
It is true that it is more expensive to renovate and restore a house than demolishing it and creating an entirely new structure. It's part of the challenge and charm to preserve what was once there. These rocks & stones had stories to tell. The place has history and a bit of a mystery, wondering what type of memories the former tenants had, living there.
I will definitely change the Main Entrance door and work on enlarging some of the windows facing the northern side with black frames
Imagine a deck or terrace overlooking the water and greens at the back of the house attached to the kitchen. It would be perfect for outdoor dining and reading during the summer. If it were my project, I will keep the masonry exterior. Supports similar to below will have to be provided to strengthen the walls but I'll try to modernize it with an extended glass structure.
On the contrary, I'll be simplifying and modifying the interior into a "Flamant" style. A lighter hued interior walls to bring the light in and various natural materials with some contemporary additions.
I'll keep dreaming. I hope whoever buys that property will decide to keep the old charm with a modern twist.
Love & light,
