R&A Magazine - SPRING 2024 - 5

- BUILDING FOR GENERATIONS -
In this issue...
Our cover story in this edition showcases a
dramatic restoration of a 1789 stone farmhouse
along with the construction of two beautiful,
seamless additions. Added to the historic farmhouse
was a spacious sunroom, followed by the
main event-a 2-story addition that enabled the
homeowners to fully realize their dream home.
Both additions were designed and built by the
Leola-based, home builder and remodeler LH
Construction (LHC).
Included in the main addition is a new kitchen,
pantry, dining area, great room, outdoor entry
way and foyer. On the second floor is a spacious
master suite (bedroom, bath, walk-in closet),
a full-sized laundry room, as well as a sleeping
porch off the bedroom. In addition to occasional
naps, it was reported that the porch is a favorite
spot for morning coffee.
As you'll learn starting on page 24, the homeowners
didn't rush into either addition. Although
they purchased their dream property in 1992,
it took them close to 30 years to decide what
they wanted to do about their home expansion.
With the assistance of Kent Nolt, owner of
LHC and his design team, plans were developed
that beautifully meshed both new additions to
the architecture and trim details of the original
farmhouse-critical requirements demanded by
the homeowners.
Our FEATURE article, submitted by Leigh Leon,
Kitchen & Bath Designer at Musselman Lumber,
addresses trends that are shaping today's kitchen
design. In addition to being a great read for
anyone contemplating a kitchen remodel, the
beautiful photos are quite inspirational.
In our ASK THE EXPERTS column: Andrew Baker,
Remodeling Division Manager at Brubaker Inc.,
provides practical advice on how to approach
interim bathroom, kitchen or laundry room
projects so that they won't be a wasted investment
when the time comes for a more complete
renovation; while Kirsten Dimitris, Marketing
Director at JJ's Custom Builders, explains the
growing interest in barndominiums-a compelling
housing option for those seeking a blend of
rustic charm and modern comfort.
In THE GALLERY we have a very attractive photo
spread submitted by Kitchen Encounters, showcasing
four great-looking kitchen projects-each
with its own style and charm.
In closing, please don't forget our advertisers
come project time. Through their advertising
support, they make R&A possible-at
no cost to you. Show your support by
calling them first and let them know
where you saw
them.
