Teardown on Life Support

Bridgehampton, New York. What do you do when your house is so old and underbuilt that it’s a “teardown” for your neighborhood? Yet you like it well enough and you want to get another ten or so years out of the house for your growing family before selling it and seeing it immediately obliterated for yet another McMansion? 

The answer is to do some strategic thinking about the spaces.
