HISTORIC NEWPORT FIREHOUSE RENOVATION  This project was a full-scale renovation of the 6000+ sq. ft historic Firehouse in Newport. The Firehouse on Mill Street was originally constructed in 1885 and was the home to one of the first official organized fire-fighting companies in the United States. One of the biggest challenges of this project was maintaining the historical aspects of the building while also updating/renovating various other parts. Our design team worked hard to ensure that every floor of this home was mapped out precisely so they could retain all historical features while also redesigning for a new home.

Before the renovation, this was a 3-bedroom, 4 bath home and due to the extensive re-design it now has 4-bedrooms, 4 full baths, and 2 half-baths available. The living room which was previously office space is now equipped with a new fireplace, a mounted TV set-up, and recessed lighting in the wood beams above.  The new and improved basement area now boasts a new kitchenette with a powder room, a new sauna, a game room, and a cinema room. One of the most unique highlights from this project is the 65 foot lookout tower which is now fitted with a brand new Viewrail stair system with black onyx rods and a massive hanging chandelier. All of the floating stair systems from Viewrail have LED treads which accentuates the beauty of the newly-renovated home. Overall, this project was a testament of the quality work that JPS provides and represents our ability to overcome challenges on projects of every size.  PROJECT TYPE:  Residential Construction
