Outside, the home appears as it was meant to look from the beginning. Exterior siding was preserved and used to custom-mill replacement material, window trims are expanded only slightly beyond original details.

Simple cabinetry and marble counters preserve the original intent. Transoms above interior doors and some leaded glass in the cabinets enhance the original intent of a simple home.

Simple marble detailing for walls and floors. A new skylight and some retro lighting slightly modernize. A shower curtain is a good way to keep things simple and changeable.

A christmas tree is set up in the living room. New furniture was period correct, and some artful odds and ends (like this pair of mirrors) make the presentation completely authentic.

This house was stripped down to bare framing, all wiring and structure was upgraded, yet the look is clearly original.
