Litchfield Horse Farm Colonial

Horse Farm ColonialCurrently under construction in 2010, this colonial reproduction sits proudly on a horse farm in Litchfield, Connecticut.  It is designed to have simple lines and give the feeling of being lofty and well grounded at the same time.  Graduated window sizes from the first to the second floor move your eye up to a detailed cornice, then a slate roof.

The roofing slate, obtained from the New York/Vermont border, was installed by the team of craftsmen at Revolutionary Restoration and Building.  In the case of this majestic home, a “graduated” pattern was used with variable width and length slates to give a thicker, built up look.  In addition, the random pattern of the slates down plays some of the formality of the trim detail so that this home is well suited for the farm estate.  Slate roofing is now one of our favorite features in roof design, which we proudly offer our clients.

Tim Egan of Revolutionary Restoration and Building designed this project.

Please stop back to watch the progress of this home as construction continues through 2011.

South County Estate

South Country EstateThis project located in the southern hills of Litchfield County encompasses new construction and renovation work to an existing 3000 square foot Colonial.  The existing architectural details of the original home were updated to match the detailing of the home’s new addition.  The transition is seamless and one cannot tell which side of the home is original when viewed from the outside.

The inside of the home has a more “modern” Colonial feel.  A contemporary kitchen was installed and the use of modern lighting and trim details give the home an “edgy” feel.

The architect on this project was Kevin McQueen of Architectural Design Alliance.
