NARI Madison Chapter 2009 Contractor of the Year Award

This project was also awarded the Madison Trust for Historic Preservation Award 2009

This cottage on the shore of Lake Monona was built in 1911 as a one-story summer cabin by the grandparents of the current owner. They later added a main house, which is connected to the cottage. The current owner lives in the cottage in the summer and the main house the rest of the year. Preservation of the cottage required a new foundation and extensive structural repair. Updated mechanicals, accessibility features were added, with a concerted effort to reuse original materials and restore the original look.
