Welcome Old House and History Lovers:
Antique houses are our passion! We enjoy making them work like new ones with the “patina” of an old one. We’re experienced old-house renovators who enjoyed the challenge of bringing the 1889 mansion into the 21st Century. (A close match to mansion styles in the late 1990s! Amazing.) This house has several kinds of historic stained and colored glass, handmade moldings and site-formed bricks. The “new” (2000) roof matches the metal shingle one from 1889.
For those who like it new—you’ll enjoy the best of an historic house’s style with none of the old-house inconveniences! Our decorating is eclectic—not fussy. You’ll find clean lines, refined themes and modern fixtures, baths,heat/air, technology.
For those who have an interest, we’d love to tell you HOW we did it, our secrets methods for making smooth walls (without a whole lot of mess or cost) as well as chronicle the many changes we made to our historic home. Guests often find that we can help with thorny projects on their own homes. (Sorry, just advice!)
