A grand main house had its detached carriage house in such disrepair to be subject to demolition by neglect and identified by the Saratoga Springs Preservation Foundation as one of “10 to Save” buildings due to its character and people’s love for carriage houses in the area. The new owners wanted to save as much of the original structure as possible and reuse the rest for reconstruction. A carefully managed site plan was required as the Carriage House had to be moved to accomodate a new full basement. The building was stripped down to its subframe. All exterior materials were salvaged for reuse. The reassembled Carriage House was able to utilize 80% of the original material for the exterior with the interior incorporating modern technologies for energy efficiencies. A carport was added to the original footprint along with a sitting porch for the summers.
