Before buying an older home, clients bring Kris Thomson in for design and/or structural consultations. He can help you determine whether the house you are considering can be modified to fit your needs. You may have questions about changing layout, adding new space, or you may have serious structural concerns not within your certified home inspector's scope.
Kris Thomson's formal training at Rhode Island School of Design coupled with his intense interest in historical building techniques and his many years on the job, give him a wealth of knowledge not found in many other people. His unique skill set can help you make informed decisions before your real estate purchase is finalized.
Like a detective, Kris Thomson looks for clues to uncover the mysteries within older homes. His sleuthing abilities have made him a favorite with the historically minded homeowner curious about the previous chapters in the history of their home. Using historical records, and datable building techniques and materials, he is able to help shed light on the sleeping historical data found in nearly every old house: tidbits about the people and their activities come to life! This can be very helpful in allowing homeowners to make informed decisions about appropriate restoration/renovations.
