Example 4 - 1931 Construction

This home was built for a senior corporate executive well after the onset of the depression. Obviously his firm still retained some prosperity. Our Company restored the interior in 1987.

(1) Living room
Prior to our client's acquisition maintenance had lapsed. Walls were begrimed, the fireplace was smoke stained, the originally varnished woodwork severely degraded.
(2) Work in progress
The mottled color of woodwork stems from contrasting colors of primer and filler.
(3) Detail of entry, prior to and after completion
Note the revised extended step and the addition of wall sconces.




(4) Staircase, in progress and completion
