In some cases, such as the one that follows, the owners opted for a totally new design and purpose for the structure. This can be costly, especially if the structure has to be moved...physically, moved, tile flooring and all!
An online story recently appeared about how one couple tackled this problem and the results that they were able to achieve.
“Kinneymorrow Architecture restored and renovated an 1880's home in Houston's Sixth Ward, transforming it into the firm's new office. In a nest of modest, shotgun-style wooden homes built during the tail end of the 19th century, Houston's Old Sixth Ward stands as one of the sprawling Texas city's most important preservation districts...The end result, a sleek update of a 700-square-foot cottage...and a less-is-more approach to renovation and preservation.”
