Before & After: Old Beams Meet a New Metal Staircase in a 1700s Farmhouse in New Jersey

Clément and Eleonora’s farmhouse in Teaneck, New Jersey was originally built in 1734, then given a larger gambrel roof addition to reach its current size in 1787. With its thick walls made of New Jersey sandstone—the same material used to build Manhattan brownstones—local historical records note that it’s an excellent example of early stone houses in the area.
