Ford Strei New Construction on Inwood Place in Tarrytown
This mid century modern was purchased by a past client of FSB with the intent to do a full on remodel. The architect team kept some of the existing walls and foundation as portions of the house in the rear yard setback.
Early on in this project the decision was made to go with a European door and window company. This was challenging due to the long lead time. Every door and window had to be ordered before framing and had to work, as all of these units had to meet the floor and ceiling to perfection. The main structure of the house had a fair amount of steel for the living room and cantilevered porch area. Another interesting feature is the bent steel plates that form a roof overhang/eave detail in many places. This house also got special care when it came to the interior cabinets and millwork. All of the areas of cabinets had to be built to very tight tolerances. The cabinet and trim teams pulled it off to perfection.
In the end,the house and yard have a very private feel, sort of like living in ones own private park area. This jewel box of a house is one that FSB and the new homeowners are very proud of.
