Vermont home being renovated with hardwood flooring
Vermont home being renovated with hardwood flooring After continually driving by a beautiful but unkempt house in Hinesburg, Vermont, The Burlington Free Press reports that Randy and Jenny Volk purchased the 3,500-square-foot home and have been working tirelessly this summer to give it a fresh appearance.
According to the news source, the couple plan to turn the building into space for two businesses and two apartments, and have been focusing on environmentally friendly renovations while maintaining its antique charm.
"It's important that we do the work with consideration of keeping it true to what it was," Randy Volk told the news provider, adding that the house has been nominated to be on the National Register of Historic Places. "They don't expect you to turn it into a museum, but they want you to be sensitive to the historic features of the building."
Along with replacing lighting and insulation to improve the home's energy efficiency, the couple also installed many beautiful decorative accents, such as hardwood flooring.
Homeowners looking to add a natural elegance to their abode may want to consider installing hardwood flooring. Along with adding aesthetic appeal, the National Wood Flooring Association reports that the material may improve the indoor air quality of a house.
