This stately home was
built in 1886 and remained in the original family’s care until it was
sold in 2010. Armed with photos of the historic residence taken at the
turn of the century, the new owners were anxious to renovate and restore
the home to its former glory. The contractor assembled a team of
professionals to assess the existing status of the home, design
renovations and implement the remodeling work.
Despite a multitude of visible shortcomings, the core structure of the
home was sound, standing the test of time. All existing main and second
level walls were constructed entirely of brick and mortar. The 14” thick
exterior walls were finished on the interior with plaster. Basement
walls were also constructed entirely of brick measuring about 16” thick.
After in-depth research, creative solutions, attention to detail and
respect for the past, this stately home was brought back to its original
magnificence, ready to reign in the 21st century.
