Kellogg Residence

Built in 1910, the Kellogg residence was originally designed for use as a boathouse, and was later converted into a residential home. The current owners decided to raise the house 6′ to 8′ and completely demolish and rebuild the first floor area, while preserving the second floor construction. The owners were unable to find a contractor to perform the required jacking procedure due to poor soil conditions and inability to build any temporary foundations.
