Restoration & Preservation of Historic Homes
There are certain features on any old house which need to be displayed correctly to give your home the appearance it was designed to have. Years ago, buildings were pedestrian friendly. Houses were viewed by foot or carriage passing at a slower speed. This slower speed gave the viewer more time to notice the beauty of a house and enabled it to be viewed in its own setting so that all its architectural details were able to work together to portray a certain feeling.
There is an interplay of shapes and shadows that impress the viewer first – not the details – and these communicate directly with your eye and mind. These features, on buildings constructed years ago, will gently guide the eye to see particular parts in order to make associations that give the building vitality, harmony and interest. Designer builders provides exterior restoration services to meet or exceed original conditions.
