2013 Chatham Preservation Award

Published July 17, 2013

 We recently received a 2013 Chatham Preservation Award for our work on the Thompson Residence in Chatham, Massachusetts. 

Originally constructed around 1880, the house was in need of significant repairs and upgrades. Because it was built very low to the ground on a partial "Cape Cod basement," it also had several structural and drainage issues to resolve.  The renovated project includes an ample front porch that enhances the form of the original house as well as additions to the rear that expand dining and kitchen areas.

The old garage was raised and renovated into a two-story guest suite. The ground level was redesigned with a sitting area; the second floor contains a single bedroom with a small bathroom and a intimate balcony facing south.

Sponsored by the Town of Chatham Historic Commission, Historic Business District Commission, and the Chatham Historical Society, the awards are presented each year to projects that rehabilitate, restore, and/or adaptively reuse historic structures.
