Allow us to introduce you to our award-winning remodel that beautifully combines period-specific architectural details with the captivating charm of the Modern Farmhouse design. This stunning restoration project in Tampa is a true testament to our passion for preserving the past while embracing the future.





Innovative Elegance

This project stands as a remarkable example of our dedication to excellence and innovation. As pioneers in the Modern Farmhouse movement, we took inspiration from the timeless allure of this architectural style and infused it into every aspect of this exceptional home. The result is a harmonious blend of classic beauty and contemporary functionality.


Restoration Reverence

The heart of this remarkable restoration lies in its meticulous attention to detail and the extensive use of wood throughout. This house represents the epitome of “Sears” homes, showcasing the craftsmanship and artistry of a bygone era. Our team was privileged to work on this project, and we poured our hearts into breathing new life into this historic gem.


Past Meets Present

One of the standout features of the Willow Ave. home is the large front gable, which was originally a three-season sleeping room. We transformed this space into a comfortable, air-conditioned area while paying homage to its original purpose. By carefully restoring the intricate details of the room, we captured the essence of its past and seamlessly integrated it into this new expression. This dedication to preserving history while embracing modern comfort is what sets this project apart.

“A perfect fusion of historical elegance and contemporary design, this project is a testament to our passion for excellence and innovation.”
