Ready to bring the joys of modern life to your home?
Here on the North Shore, there is no shortage of beautiful older homes. From 18th century row houses to mid-century bungalows you can truly find it all in Beverly and beyond. While these homes have “good bones” and loads of character, they often don’t have many of the benefits of modern living, including open concept living areas, energy efficient appliances, luxury materials, and much more.
When modernizing an outdated home design, it’s crucial to set goals from the start to ensure the scope of the project is right for the home and right for you. For many, this means keeping the character of the home in tact, while for others it might mean adding space with a home addition and some exterior improvements.
Godfrey Design-Build can help design and remodel your home to be all you want it to be. Our designers, architects, and construction professionals have worked for years in the area on modernizing outdated homes. Our entire team will be singularly focused on meeting your vision, exceeding your expectations, and making sure your home is all you’re hoping it will be.
There are so many reasons to modernize your home!
- Comfort — New windows, modern insulation, and open layouts provide a more livable space
- Inspiring design — Modern interior design and classic New England architecture are a match made in heaven
- More space — Updated layouts and space-saving features and appliances can reveal space you didn’t know you had

Getting started on a home improvement project can be daunting. Besides the construction process, you have to interview subcontractors, manage the logistics and budgets, and juggle dozens of time-sensitive tasks at once.
