The Best of Old & New

Remodeling an 1885 brick Queen Anne-style Victorian home mixes the best of the old and the new by creating an artful and livable home.

There are those that shun older homes because of drafts, bad plumbing, too few bathrooms, dim lighting, and too frequent repairs. But what if a remodel solved these problems? Then one could enjoy a home with a design and construction made interesting because it’s tied to a place and its traditions where the hands that laid the bricks and carved the woodwork can still be sensed in the artisan finishes.
