This project involved the exterior restoration and interior remodeling of a mid-1920s home. In the early 1950s, a single-story, flat-roofed addition had been wrapped around the west and north sides of the house. At the same time, the front porch was screened in, the sunroom steps were removed, the second floor window box was taken down, and all the stucco and woodwork on the house was painted white, largely obscuring the original Craftsman/Tudor detailing.

Our exterior restoration sought to restore the home’s original appearance where possible, and to better integrate the ‘50s addition. The front porch screening was removed, the sunroom steps rebuilt, the window box re-installed, and the stucco and wood paint colors brought more in line with the original. A new sloped roof structure was built over the flat sections, and new rubber slate roofing and copper gutters and downspouts installed for the whole house, creating a distinctive, durable roof design that helps tie the whole composition together.
