The original house is a simple structure with elegant details, like the brick foundation and wood pilasters. For consistency inside and out, we matched original details so any new work would be seamless. Everything from woodwork to columns and flooring were replicated, even down to the glass doorknobs. The old arched porch hood was salvaged and reused at the new back door.
A lot of our clients explore the option of moving, but usually most houses they find are going to require modifications to make it their own. If you love your neighborhood it makes sense to investigate design changes that would allow you to stay.
