"Owner Jeff Shardell and Lafe Harrower, contractor/builder of Lucus Construction, took extra steps to revitalize many features that were still in excellent shape.

...they retained the original windows, doors, screen doors, and yard gates wherever possible. The window trims, including pedimented lintels, were repainted a traditional blue color.

Shardell's vision was to recreate a historic "farmhouse feel" for guests, but with all of today's modern comforts and amenities."

"Our builder Lafe Harrower was game for anything, with an eye for the artistic, and dealt with us directly and honestly. He worked off of my non-architectural drawings. I pushed the envelope with unconventional building ideas, yet he always figured out how to do it."

— owner Pelle Bjorkman
