The first thing we wanted to do was to give the house its soul back. Much of its original character had been stripped away and sold off. Though we never found the architectural plans, we realized that the house held clues to the original layout. It was easy to see where skinny partition wall had been put up from hairline cracks and some investigative knuckle-tapping.
Both the entry doors and the stained-glass windows are original to the home; the floor tile is new.
