Middleton Camp

Middleton Camp features both a lodge and a cottage, each nearly a century old. Our team was able to restore both buildings at the same time, preserving the homes' character while bringing both functional and modern updates.


Vintage Kitchen

We sought to preserve a vintage aesthetic in the main kitchen with our design choices. We began with three-panel upper cabinets, and we echoed this design in the glass of the custom, built-in bar cabinet. We painted the cabinets a rich, earthy green and utilized brass fixtures and cabinet hardware. We used soapstone, which has traditionally been used in older homes, for counters in the kitchen and the bathrooms. The rich green herringbone tile backsplash feature is from Fireclay.



This unique project featured the restoration of a lodge and a smaller cottage on the same property. Both buildings were on posts and pads and were sitting on the ground, so our restoration began with lifting both buildings to dig and pour a new foundation. Once the foundation was complete, we moved the buildings back into place.

As with all of our historic remodels, we sought to salvage as many original materials as possible. Much of the wall finish is original to the home. We also sanded and refinished the home’s original Douglas Fir flooring. Everything on the porch is original to the home except for the windows. Although we were unable to salvage the home’s fireplace, we rebuilt a replica using a concrete mantel and hearth in its original location.


Functional Remodel

Although we kept the existing footprint of the lodge, we reconfigured the arrangement of bedrooms and bathrooms and created a more open floor plan. The original stairs were steep and narrow, and they featured a trapdoor at the top. To make the stairs safe and bring them up to code, we added a dormer to the second floor and reconfigured the staircase. This dormer addition also supported a new full upstairs bathroom.


The Cottage

Our primary goal in the cottage after ensuring it was on a firm foundation was to open the floor plan between the living room and dining room while giving everything else a fresh update. The cottage boasts all new cabinets and appliances, and we updated the lighting throughout. Although the floors could not be salvaged, we installed a wide-board southern yellow pine to maintain the vintage look. We also added a railing to the original stairs, making them safer and more kid-friendly.

In addition to salvaging doors and wall finishes, we were also able to salvage several original plumbing pieces. The bathroom sinks, faucets, and clawfoot tub were all part of the original cottage.
