In Historic Olde Town Louisville, our homeowners decided to renovate a home and build their dream, custom Built By Krueger home within it. They didn’t want the custom design to be a drastic departure from the neighborhood, so blending the new build with the historic style was key. Keeping the architecture congruent with the quaint style of Olde Town meant that executing their vision had to be seamless all the way down to the smallest detail, including new siding to match the old home.
As a custom home builder, we enjoy building your dream home WITH you. These homeowners wanted their own hands to be involved in building their home and we helped them choose exactly how they’d like to do that. Everyday at home, they walk across floors they laid themselves.
This home has all the aesthetics of a historic home as well as all the benefits of modern artisan construction. Built By Krueger homes are extremely energy efficient with continuous insulation, energy efficient Marvin windows, on-demand hot water heaters, and high-efficiency HVAC systems. For peace of mind, this house is also equipped with a fire suppression system.
The detached 2-car garage has auxiliary housing in its second story and the excavation led to a very interesting discovery that needed to be cleaned up before construction could continue. The remedy added two weeks to the building schedule, but that was the right thing to do to make this home safe and stable for the long-term. You never know what you might find when you dig, especially in a 150-year-old community, but we’re ready to take anything in stride so our homeowners won’t need to worry.
