Example 2 - 1996 Repaint of 1983 Company Restoration of 1905 Construction.

Clearly this home’s builder was not to be denied Victorian flourishes while building a classic box. Note the treatment of porch posts, radius window casings and porch sills, and the scalloped trim band beneath the drip cap.

Likewise the opportunity to indulge in Victorian style decorating was not lost on our client. This is a very special home.
