Partridge worked closely with the homeowners while exploring various design concepts. After many configurations, the most elegant solution to preserving the railway home was to re-purpose it as a pool house. The historic home had to be moved to a new foundation taking care to preserve many original features. In order to maintain two separate properties with a unified design, an open metal picket fence was chosen that enhanced the natural connection between the yards without entirely removing the property line. Finally, in order to enhance the visual balance of the design, the pool deck had to be lowered.
