1939 Bungalow Renovation
This 845 s.f. wood frame home originally built in 1939 is made up with original Dade County pine. The home is a unique project that we have enjoyed taking on as a whole house renovation. The original wood structure has some of the original charm that has lasted over 73 years. Our goal was to strip the interior down to the original structure and to bring the house up to current building standards without jeopardizing the original look. Upon demolition we found plumbing and electrical components that were inadequate and presented potential hazards. We completely replaced and brought up to current code the mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems. Termites had left their imprint over the years as did the original leaking windows which exposed damaged wood elements. We replaced numerous wall and floor framing components which strengthened the overall structure. New impact, energy efficient windows were installed as well as new roof and wall insulation. Our firm was awarded a 2013 Community Appearance Award from the city of Ft. Lauderdale for the renovation.
