This house was originally built in the 1940's and remained untouched since then. It featured knob and tube wiring, galvanized steel plumbing, and did not have air conditioning.
The existing carpet and asbestos tile were replaced with reclaimed wood flooring from a more contemporary era. Vinyl siding was removed from the exterior and the damaged wood siding underneath was replaced with new. The kitchen was demolished and relocated to a location adjacent to the dining room and the guest suite and master suite were completely gutted and removed.
Phase II of the remodel involved the addition of a front and side porch.
