Mt. Holly, Vermont

Years of demolition and remodeling projects allowed us to collect tremendous quantities of materials. Some doors and windows came from old Cambridge and Newton houses; French doors that in a previous life faced the Atlantic were rescued from a Martha's Vineyard demolition; and doors and railing posts were refurbished from a 1880's carriage house. All this was plenty to build a sprawling home in the rolling hills of Vermont that is entirely the creation of Bolalek Construction – crafted by the artisans who work with the company and designed entirely by Andy Bolalek, this house is a place to gather and take joy in the company of others: whether they are family or the neighbors of this close-knit rural community.
