Floor Plan: 2nd Floor

What we would do differently: Add radiant heat beneath the kitchen's brick floor—if only we had the money!

Biggest challenge: Convincing the municipality that we had two legal single-family homes on one lot; this task delayed the renovation for a year.

How we solved it: Researching, writing letters, and standing our ground.

Floor plans: A timber frame salvaged from a 1780 summer kitchen was added to expand the now 2,500-square-foot, three-bedroom, 2½-bath farmhouse.
