215 Kentucky Avenue

You can still see the “bones” of the original shotgun floorplan of this adorable house. Built in the late 1800’s, by 2014, it had become completely dilapidated and unlivable. The owners rescued it and spent 2-1/2 years (one of which the owner says was spent crying) rebuilding it and turning it into an inspiring example of sustainability, salvage and reuse, as well as aging-in-place. They sourced all the materials and many of the furnishings from local vendors, craftspeople and architectural salvage stores. One of the best finds was the entire set of kitchen cabinets. The dining table was made out of beams reclaimed from the house during the restoration. The peaceful feeling of this light-filled home is due to the owners’ vision and planning, giving themselves ample storage and airy, comfortable rooms.
