Historic Tulip House Restoration
This 1927 Salem home, dubbed the “Tulip Cottage” for the stained-glass flower featured in a front window, underwent a renovation whose aim was to give the owner the space she needed while preserving the home’s historic feel, and cutting down on energy leaks throughout the home.
While expanding the floor plan with a bedroom addition and restoring period-appropriate finishes throughout the home, Kraft and team put in a tank-less water heater, replaced leaky ducts with insulated ducts, upgraded the heating system, and installed windows and doors with double panes and low-E coating to reduce heat loss.
The cramped living room was enlarged with a floor-to-ceiling bay window, giving the homeowner the space she needed to entertain. The family room was transformed into a dining room, and a guest bathroom and bedroom expansion created more space for the homeowner and guests. An exterior addition overlooks a new patio, giving the home an outdoor living space that blends perfectly with the original architecture.
“The charm of the home could have easily been lost if the design were left in the hands of someone less architecturally aware of its needs. For that reason the design team compiled for this project was critical” –Robert Kraft, owner of Kraft Custom Construction.
