This historic house in Burlington’s Old North End was part of the worker’s housing for the Champlain Glass Company. The house at the street is a modest 20×30 brick 1 1/4 story brick building. The headroom on the second floor was very limited, the additions added to the back were poorly built.
Historic preservation rules required that the addition did not overwhelm the historic portion of the house. The first floor changes added a porch, entry area and expanded the kitchen. The new porch on the first floor allowed for the 2nd floor to be wider and provide room for a generous master suite. The addition remained visually secondary to the main part of the house while still meeting the clients needs.
