Quote: The 1,700-square-foot Potts house, built in the 1880s and added
onto in the 1920s, faces Main Street. Overcash-Demmitt Architects designed
plans to add about 2,500 square feet, with an expansion in back of the house.
“The basic front facade of the house will be constant,” said
Collins. “It will be painted and upgraded with a reshingled roof.”
The existing structure will be used primarily for offices. The expansion will
include a check-in station, examination room and private patient rooms. Carroll,
