Will Calhoun - House VI is an intimate residence. I was asked to renovate this home in 1989 after earlier construction techniques had failed to protect the integrity of the curtain wall and roof systems. The renovation was extremely comprehensive will many new structural members, new insulation, roof system, windows + doors, FineStone exterior stucco, skim coat plaster interior, floors, glass insets in the floors, cabinets, tile, etc. etc. For many years the house was worry free. Ultimately, the closely packed horizontal skylights with 'lower than spec' curbs on the roof succumbed to New England winters and pin hole leaks began to appear. That was alleviated in 2010 when many of the skylights were eliminated and a low pitched EPDM roof system was installed. In late winter 2014 the temperature plunged in the house and the low temperature sensor failed to alert anyone until 14 hidden pipe breaks and a great deal of water damage necessitated a new, smaller renovation to penetrate the finishes - both interior and exterior - to mend the pipes and restore the house to it's original aesthetic.
