A 1913 Craftsman home goes from ho-hum to stunning when restored back to its original glory.
Kelly Sutherlin McLeod Architecture
home isn't exactly an eyesore...in fact, its bland exterior fit its role as a rental property (it had been converted to a duplex years prior). But once the property changed hands from a landlord-owned property to a single-family, the home received an update worthy of its historic pedigree. The "after" proves that there was much room for improvement to an already-nice "before":
Though extensive structural changes were made to the home, the most immediately notable difference is in the exterior. The white brick was chemically stripped, a second-floor deck (an original detail revealed in period photographs) was built and new shingle siding in a butternut-stained hue was added. The easiest change? Removing the aluminum awnings, which proves that small details can often make a big difference. To read more about the renovation, visit Style 1900
