Home Addition

Madison, Wisconsin

The focus of this project was to enable the elderly owner to remain in her 1899 home with the addition of a 800 square foot master suite with adjoining deck on the first floor off the kitchen. She remained in the home with her daughter's family, the new owner, for the remainder of her life and passed away in her suite with her children and grandchildren surrounding her.

Roof Deck

Oak Park, Illinois

 The owner of this historic early 20th century home could not use the existing deck in its current condition, with the underlying roof leaking into the sun-room below which overlooks her double lot. We removed the existing deck and roof and installed a new roof and redesigned a new deck integrated into the existing homes design. She was quite happy with the result.

Foundation Restoration
Madison, Wisconsin

The 115 year old  sandstone  rubble foundation on this home, due to previous attempts to stem deterioration parged the entire
interior face with a  hard cementitious material.  Unknowingly, this had the inverse affect and accelerated damage to the softer stone and original lime mortar by trapping moisture.  The parging was completely removed along with the sand remnants of the original mortar.  Joints were raked back well into the interior of the wall and repointed with new lime mortar to match original. 

Good for another 100 years.
