Historic Cottage Remodel Truro
This home was originally built in 1800, the remodel was designed by architect Dan Costa.
“It’s always a worry when you add modern amenities to an antique house that the character of the original structure might be lost. Augustus Construction was diligent in maintaining the significant heritage aspects of our place, and also knowing how to restore them, often when we or the architect didn’t think it was possible – for instance, our heritage windows. They were keen to reuse and repurpose, and we’ve benefited from this. As well, there was never an issue about the doing something right, with the best materials, regardless of the time it took. Particularly with a small house like ours, the finesse of the details is very important. Our project manager, Mark, was remarkable, as were all the trades who seemed to really care about the project.”
