Every exterior wall
is shown on the elevations and generally is drawn at the same scale as the floor
plans (
= 1′-0″ is
common). Besides showing the overall picture of the exterior of the building,

to larger-scale details.


elevations show the materials drawn to scale, indicating doors, window
patterns, exterior grade, and mechanical penthouses, to name a few.  The building elevations are a bit like the
view seen from several hundred yards-an overall picture of the building rather
than specific details.  The materials
seen in the elevation can be delineated if it makes
the building read better.  Brick can be shown by drawing the horizontal brick joints.  Concrete can be drawn
by dotting the wall, wood by showing the joints, and windows by showing

Part One of the Jordan Whole-Home Renovation & Addition

This past fall, we completed an incredible whole-home renovation project (including all furniture, textiles, window treatments, and styling) in Jordan, Minnesota. No detail went unnoticed and we couldn’t love the final result more. 

We’ll be sharing out different areas of the home as part of our project reveal series, so be sure to stay tuned for that. In the meantime, we’re kicking off our renovation reveal with the start of the home tour: the exterior and entryway. So, without further ado, let’s jump right in.

Anne E. Grimmer and Kay D. Weeks

A new exterior addition to a historic building should be considered in a rehabilitation project only after determining that requirements for the new or adaptive use cannot be successfully met by altering non-significant interior spaces. If the new use cannot be accommodated in this way, then an exterior addition may be an acceptable alternative. Rehabilitation as a treatment “is defined as the act or process of making possible a compatible use for a property through repair, alterations, and additions while preserving those portions or features which convey its historical, cultural, or architectural values.”

The topic of new additions, including rooftop additions, to historic buildings comes up frequently, especially as it relates to rehabilitation projects. It is often discussed and it is the subject of concern, consternation,

What a blessing it has been to see him doing something he is so passionate about!
