The Sesuit Harbor Cape Renovation & Addition Begins

DSC_0182

A3 is excited to be working with Horgan Associates Design Build on a renovation and addition near Sesuit Harbor.  The cottage has been in the family for several decades and was used only as a summer house due to the fact that the house was uninsulated.  The owners recently decided they would like to begin spending more time in East Dennis throughout the year and  contacted A3 Architects about a renovation of the existing house and a knock down/rebuild of an existing side three seasons room.  The rebuilt addition will expand the primary living space of the house- allowing for a larger kitchen and dining room.   The scope of work for the project also includes a deep energy retrofit and has been  submitted  to the Mass New Homes with energy star program as a Tier 3 proposal.   The walls will be insulated with cellulose and 3 inches of rigid are proposed for the exterior of the structure.  A blower door test will be performed after framing to test the air leakage of the structure.  Check out the photos below – Mike Horgan and his team are doing an awesome job!  They even did a full scale mock-up of the trim detail for the house!
