Lake Martin, Alabama
As the dream home of an avid antique collector and artist, this residence is a mix of all things old and new. Reclaimed wood,
refinished by hand at the site, from derilect Montgomery homes serves as the backdrop to nearly every room in the house. Note the existing paint and stains the owners chose to preserve on the walls as a reminder of their history. Stained-glass windows, reclaimed doors and stairwell posts - all antique pieces found online or saved from the local wrecking ball - add to the effect. Combined with the steel work in the trusses, balconies and exterior details, the home bridges the gap between old and new.
