Marvin Integrity Red Diamond Achiever Award

August 2, 2016 | Columbia County NY, Historic Restoration

Our Bartlett House restoration project is eligible for the Marvin Windows and Doors 2016 Red Diamond Achiever People’s Choice Award. If you’ve had a chance to look at the newly restored Bartlett House and like what you see, please consider voting for us.

The restoration of the historically registered Bartlett House signifies the rebirth of an era that was really about how important the railroad was for the development of rural America. This magnificent four-story brick building was originally a stop for the railroad that went through Columbia County in Ghent, New York, and is highly regarded as a huge piece of local history. Adding to the building’s historical architecture, affordable Integrity® Wood-Ultrex® Double Hung Windows fit the character of the building perfectly. The results turned out to be an amazing 1800’s building that will be around for another 150 years.

Adirondack Style Log Home Renovation

September 29, 2014 | Dutchess County NY, Historic Restoration

This great little log cabin is located by a lake in Rhinebeck NY. Getting the right cedar shake on the roof really has brought it back to life. The copper flashing is a nice touch. Soon there will be a matching pavilion. A very distinct look that goes so well by the water.

Spencertown Academy

The Spencertown Academy was in a bind. They no longer could use the front entry of this amazing structure. A busy summer of events was planned and the front porch was in need of  a major renovation. The results speak for themselves. We are very proud to continue restoring such great structures in our community.

Thanks Times Union for making Lagonia Construction and the Spencertown Academy “Your Best Shot” of the week!

This 20,000 square foot barn, originally constructed in 1854, is undergoing a complete historic restoration.
