Ready to tackle your own renovation but not sure where to start? Or maybe you're several months into one and encountered one of those 'old house problems'. We can help with that.
If you're anything like me, you just want someone to tell you what works.
How to redesign your floor plan to work for the way you live, but also honor the period of the house. What to do when a contractor tells you to replace all of your original wood windows. (Umm...NO!) Where to find salvage materials or have them replicated. Maybe you just want to grab a quick download with step-by-step instructions for a specific problem. Or perhaps you're ready to take a course to learn everything you can about historic home renovations.
Well then, you're in the right place.
Quick and easy if you just need another set of eyes on your space or if you need specific help in an area or two. This is the best way to pick Heather's brain to get ideas for your renovation, to discuss a specific problem, or just to get some construction advice. Often times this is perfect to get homeowners headed in the right direction.
All consultations are virtual via Google Meet, three timed sessions to choose from, and you can select the date and time from the calendar.
While historic houses are our specialty, Heather can help transform any house into your dream home through our virtual Design Services. A One Room Design Plan includes a 3-D rendering, floor plan, design selections, and other helpful tips. The Redesigned Floor Plan reworks an entire floor, or two, including moving rooms around to make your home more functional.
Our Design Services are available to anyone, anywhere.
If you are planning a historic renovation and just need someone on your side to guide you in the right direction and cheer you on, this is for you. Heather can help from the start to completion with all aspects of the renovation - planning, budget, design selections, and working with contractors - through weekly Google Meet sessions and emails.
Reach out early as we only schedule a limited number of clients to make sure you get the attention you need.
The culmination of years of working with contractors of all trades, this series is meant to guide you through how to find a contractor, to getting the job done, and everything in between.
Old houses have well, old house problems, but we have solutions. This resource bank is intended to answer questions and show you how to tackle specific renovation tasks related to historic home renovations.
Historic Renovations 101
Working With Contractors
A new resource for all my fellow old house owners, especially DIYers.
Heather has worked with clients for years to guide them through their home renovations. From a quick design consultation to design plans to get them started to managing the entire renovation. She's helped with every stage of the process and would love to help you.
“An added bonus is that she’s very knowledgeable about historic homes and how to renovate them properly.”
We worked with Heather through two phases of renovation on our historic, Victorian home. Heather has always been prompt, reliable, communicative and organized.

“She has a fantastic eye for design and decor and is wonderful to work with.”
Heather has done projects for us in the past and we have always been so happy with her work. When we decided to move ahead with another project we knew we wanted her to create our new spaces. She came up with a revision to our laundry room that we are thrilled about and a design for a new screened porch which we can't wait to see built!

Letting the House Tell It's Story
Preserving Original Features
Curating Vintage Materials
Going the Extra Mile
We don't believe in house flipping. Or the quickest and easiest way to renovate a house. Home takes time, and historic ones a whole lot of it.
What Makes Us Different
We believe in quality over speed. In attention to detail over just getting finished. In doing things the right way even when it takes what feels like way too long. And most importantly, making sure that our clients love calling their historic house home when we finish a project.
WE CARE ABOUT the details.
WE CARE ABOUT getting IT DONE RIGHT.
WE CARE ABOUT YOU, and where you call home.
