The transformation of a house into a home can take years to complete. Some homeowners strive to leave their mark on a property by renovating renovating a home to make it a better fit a home a better fit for the lifestyle of the family living inside it. Whether changes are cosmetic or in-depth, like an addition, many property owners are looking to incorporate greener technology into the process and the design of the house.
For example, at 7417 Glen Haven Road, located near the southern sides of Skaneateles Lake in New York, a property has been renovated into a one-of-a-kind country estate. The Post-Standard reports that the house and bed and breakfast rest on 25 acres of land.
While the home was originally built in 1920 - it hardly resembles the structure it once was. The sellers, Nancy and Alan Saulsbury raised the roof on the house and added a wing, turning the two bedroom home into a 6,500-square-foot house with six bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms.
The greatest alteration was turning the back barn into a bed and breakfast called The Cottage at Glen Haven. The news source reports that the business features four bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Various cosmetic and structural changes were made to the house - including the switch to radiant heating. The Saulsbury's switched to radiant heating after learning about the energy efficiency of the technology. In addition, the heating solution still allowed the homeowners to use various flooring materials throughout the house, instead of impeding the interior design of the structure like vents and radiators.
The Post-Standard reports that wood, carpet and tile were used throughout the property as flooring because the homeowners did not have to fear about problems with the heating technology.
