1890’s Spring Run Farm Remodel
Spring Run Farm is an equestrian training facility in Louisville, Kentucky, situated on 50 acres in the heart of horse country. The residence on the property—originally two cabins connected by a dog run—was built in 1890. The cabins had been modified many times over the years, but they were deteriorating and showing their age. Beyond restoring the cabins’ structural integrity and form, the owners wished to reinvent the structure as a bed-and-breakfast to complement the equine facility.
M.O.D.E.’s redesign included 5 bedrooms and 4½ baths. The extensive remodel restored the original log construction of the interior walls and completely reworked the floor plan to allow for a more modern, open layout with a natural flow between the rooms, the exterior and the new commercial kitchen. Re-siding the home and replacing the windows with more energy-efficient glazing were important components of the exterior upgrade.M.O.D.E.’s thoughtful approach and attention to detail revitalized the house for another 100 years of use, modernizing it while preserving its historical character and charm.
