The cottage began its life as an agricultural blacksmith shop, located directly across Weatherhead Hollow Road from one of the first farmhouses in Guilford, VT. The farmstead itself straddles the narrow town road threading the valley toward the State line, and makes a significant contribution to the visual landscape of Guilford, one of Vermont’s oldest towns. The historic structure was in heavy disrepair but its humble beauty on the roadside spoke to us. We wanted to honor its legacy and presence by giving it a new life, as a small residence within the owner’s vision of a rural arts campus.
