Mill Pond

Renovation of an historic Sears built home in 1915.

Historical Renovation

38 Mill Pond Lane, circa 1915, is a balloon framed structure. One of three “Craftsman-Style” homes at the top of Mill Pond Road, the home was in a state of deterioration. We began renovations in February of 2011 and was completed in January of 2012.

The renovation consisted of lifting the home and replacing the foundation with a full basement. Once down on the new foundation we carefully began the process of renovating the interior while saving as much of the original material and character as possible. When we began opening walls to modernize the mechanicals we discovered that a fire had charred the roof system and interior walls which we believe had simply smothered itself out and the damage was never repaired until now. The exterior was completed quickly as the only changes were an additional dormer in the rear. The siding was replaced with new cedar shingles as well as windows and a fresh coat of paint. True to the homes roots the siding was basket weaved and the porch was repaired and outfitted with new tapered columns to match its sister homes.
