When Matt and Jon look back at the before photos of the home they share with their young son, they ask themselves what in the world they were thinking when they bought it. The 1962 post and beam home was in a state of extreme deterioration and was marketed as a tear-down. The house, part of a subdivision in Concord, MA created in the late 1950’s by the Deck House Company of nearby Acton, reminded them of the Eichler homes they knew from the West Coast. The pair could see, under layers of dust, mold and debris, the gem that was waiting to be restored. They saw the importance of bringing it back to life, both for it's contribution to the little neighborhood of similar houses and for the environmental value of saving its materials from destruction. After 6 months of renovation, carried out with an approach borrowed from their experiences of restoring much older homes in historic districts around the country, they moved in and became the second family in its history to call it their home.
