1949 Midcentury Modern Green Restoration | Highland Park

This was a significant renovation to a classic 1949 Midcentury Modern home. The exterior cedar sheathing and all of the existing windows were removed and replace with a continuous layer of 2" of foam board insulation.

The dramatic living room features a high 11’-4” ceiling, full height windows overlooking the ravine in the back, and a limestone corner fireplace. The flooring is individual, hand laid quarter sawn and rift cut oak parquet. All of the windows were replaced with new, low 'E', argon filled units with their Solar Heat Gain Factors coordinated based on the window orientation.

 Boral ‘TrueExterior’ jamb extensions and exterior trim, made from waste fly ash from the coal industry, was used to address the thickened exterior sheathing.
