This home in St. Paul’s historical designation district predated building permits—it is thought to have been built in 1882 as a single-family home. This whole-home renovation aimed not only to create a modern, open floor plan for its owners but also to preserve and emphasize the historical charm and design details of the original construction.
Holly Home Renovations worked for approximately two years with the St. Paul Heritage Preservation Commission to ensure the restoration and remodel remained true to the home’s Queen Anne farmhouse roots. The renovation included demolition of the structurally compromised back portion of the home, which allowed for the construction of a new addition with an open floor plan. The existing home was brought down to the studs and updated with modernized mechanical systems.
Original to the home, the clawfoot bathtub was sandblasted and re-epoxied. The floor plan of the primary suite was designed around the tub in order to use it as an art focal point in the bay window. Heated floors were also installed, giving the space a spa-like elegance while having the historical touch of the salvaged tub.
