With imagination and a commitment to timeless design, a 1920’s West Knoxville home is being rebuilt from the ground-up. The Dutch Colonial was due a substantial renovation. With major structural and moisture issues, Hickory saw that it would be most cost-effective to raze the house and start from scratch.
Working with architect Jonathan Miller, Hickory Construction is managing the new
construction that will keep the house suitable to the neighborhood.
“I know we can design a better house than was here,” says Miller. “It can be as timeless and beautiful as before without sacrificing modern convenience.” The new house will rely on the original footprint of the old house, but it will follow a more classic Dutch Colonial style. It will also give the homeowners more living space by increasing square footage.
Miller says the key to building a “new-old” house is maintaining discipline so the design is not overdone. By layering textures and materials, especially on the exterior, the home maintains its familiarity in the neighborhood.
The rebuild also gives the homeowner the opportunity to take advantage of the latest in products and building materials designed for energy efficiency.
