Welcome to dwellstead

We are pleased to announce the winner of our drawing at 284 Liberty Street during the 2019 Candlelight Tour! 

dwellstead was excited to be asked by the Newburgh Historic Society to have our home at 284 Liberty Street participate in this year's Candlelight Tour, an annual fundraising event that "features thirteen decorated homes including a diverse assortment of public and private spaces — mansions, structures in the rehabilitation process, new construction, architectural gems, and some of Newburgh’s most important landmarks. For years, community members within the second largest historic district in New York State have generously decorated and opened their homes to visitors in support of local history."

We decided to hold a raffle with a $100 prize to a winner who could correctly guess the amount of savings we are starting to get at our home for heating and cooling costs. Of almost 200 visitors, 132 participated in the raffle. However, of those, ONLY SIX of you correctly got the answers to both questions, and so the drawing was from among those six!

While our data is still preliminary, so far we are on track to save 85% in winter heating costs, and 95% in summer cooling costs! It is our near term goal to get both of those numbers down to 100%!


Thank you, Ana, for your awesome Vanna White impersonation!
