Dutch colonial home renovation is both exciting and challenging. The original import of this 17th-century colonial architecture had almost completely vanished in the New York fires of 1776 and 1835. However, there was just something so spectacular about the dormers bearing shed-like overhangs and a grand entrance adorned with a transom and sidelights that brought a revival in the 1930s. Artisan’s worked overtime to recreate the perfect match of wood, stone and brick. We like projects that require a “little thinking”.
