Tradition With a TwistGo Cottage
As a competitive cross country skier, Todd Carter and his wife Sharon Middendorf were spending so much time in upstate New York that they decided to look for property in the area. They found a 980-square-foot cottage in Lake Placid. In a record-breaking nine weeks, they managed to restore it back to its pristine state.
One of the great features of a 1920s cottage is the built-in hutch. In a modern twist on that component, the homeowners ripped out the sheetrock behind the hutch and attached glass doors on both sides of it. Now they have a pass through to the kitchen and a whole lot more light flowing into the space.
