Jug Hollow Farm is home to one of the Valley Forge area's original farmhouses. SunPower's aim with this job was to modernize the kitchen and add a bedroom suite while maintaining the integrity of the original architecture. To this end, SunPower de-constructed and re-built an addition to the north wing of the farmhouse, including structural stabilization and improved energy efficiency, as well as the creation of a home office and a master suite.

First, the new, larger addition was designed with period-specific details and finishes to compliment the original farmhouse. The entire addition was built according to SunPower’s energy efficient guidelines to include air sealing, super insulation and energy efficient heating and cooling equipment.

A few years later, SunPower returned for Phase two: rebuilding of the master suite.  Structural repairs required underpinning of the existing foundation, replacing deteriorated framing, and insulating all accessible areas. The master suite includes a bathroom with a whirlpool, steam shower, skylights, bead board walls and doors and antique hardware. Air conditioning was retrofitted for the master suite and office.
