Floor Plan: 1st Floor

What we did: Renovated a circa 1780 carriage house, then the 1820 main house, back-to-back.

Remodeling cost: $400,000

Time frame: Nine years and counting

Where we saved: Scoured eBay, Craigslist, salvage yards, and contractor supply houses for low-cost castoffs that suited our new-old, vintage-modern style.

Where we splurged: Carrara marble countertops in the bathroom and kitchen, where they are 5 inches deeper than standard to accommodate the beams.
