Captain Benjamin Freeman Historic Restoration
Brewster, MA

The following photo slideshows* depict the historical restoration of the Captain Benjamin Freeman house, originally built in 1835. Improvements like custom shelving were added to the main house as well as restoration to an existing detached carriage house and garage. A new three-car garage with historic detail was also constructed. This entire project is still in progress and new photos will be added.

Carriage House Restoration - This existing carriage house was restored with rotted wood removed. The entire back of the building was rebuilt from the ground up, including new sills and corner posts. The building had shifted sideways and had to be re-straightened and secured.

The finished interior serves as a guest house with 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. Flooring, beams, steps and rails on the first floor were built from reclaimed Heart Pine. The second floor was salvaged during demolition and re-milled on site. This carriage house was designed by Tom and the owner placed this plaque in it to commemorate the beautiful restoration.
