On the Drawing Board

Richie-Option-1

Here in Washington, DC and the surrounding areas in Maryland and Northern Virginia, there are many historic districts with older, period style homes. While these houses are sometimes not up to modern standards, they offer charm and unique character. In fact, many homeowners want to remodel their historic style homes but stay true to the original architecture.

At Wentworth, we specialize in remodeling older homes and can preserve the historic style of your home while modernizing it, building a seamless addition, updating its façade, etc.

Different Options for Seamless Home Additions & Remodeling

We present different drawings before starting any remodeling project. This serves two purposes—it allows for:

  • A seamless home addition or remodel. Our team honors the homeowners’ wishes to stay true to the home’s original style.

“ A number of the design elements I could easily envision from the plans and knew I would like, such as the arched French doors, window over sink, pantry. But others came to life for me only in the implementation. Standing in the doorway of the small bedroom, for example, is one of my favorite views; the arched cubby is beautiful. ”
