From the front street, this landmarked house looks just like the others along the block. However, once you move along the back, the new addition comes into view showcasing a step towards the future. With the subtle form of the gable being reintroduced in a contemporary light, this small add to a historic house gives it a new life. From the beetle kill pine boards that sits within the standing seam metal shell, every move was intentionally pushed and pulled to create a new home.
