Historic homes are usually our absolute favorite to photograph and explore. The homes designed and built in the past have so much thought into the details that new constructions just don't have...mostly because the details cost so much more to add! This home on the Main St. of Lexington was recently TOP TO BOTTOM restored by one of our favorite local businesses, Elk Mountain Contracting! The owner of the business, Meade Shirley, contacted us about photographing another of his amazing restoration/builds. As you may know, they are the contractors responsible for the "Sanctuary" that we recently had photographed that is a SUPERHOST Airbnb location in the heart of the mountains.
This restoration in Lexington is one of a kind! Meade and his team has made this home come back to life! They returned all the hardwoods back to their original glory, made it go from a business with offices back into a single family home, bathroom and kitchen restoration, and even in the basement returned the original beams back into the daylight and removed all the drop ceiling and added a custom bar, and the whole exterior (newly build timber frame garage, stone retaining wall holding up over 12 ft of brought in dirt to level the yard, brickwork, patio, roof, woodwork and porches) has been fixed..and much much much more!!
We highly recommend Meade, and love his hard working attitude, great product, and attention to detail! Check out more from the session below, and make sure to contact them with any of your contracting/restoration needs!
