Queen Anne With Witch's Hat Turret: After

Who: Claudia P.
Where: Marshall, MO

We were given the chance to save an old 1874 Queen Anne from being torn down and to restore "her" back to her former glory and more. It was exciting to have an old photo to help us in designing the gable decor, porch's brick-a-brack design, and to figure out the whole layout of the house. I was inspired by the home's original stained-glass windows to come up with the color scheme used. Our favorite aspect was adding the "witch's hat" turret over the sunporches. The dilapidated roof had to be torn off anyway, so we felt it would complete another one of the Queen Anne characteristics from that historical time period. We are honored to be a part of the history of the house and to restore "her" to survive another 139 years with integrity.

Who did the work: We did most of the work ourselves.
Cost: $50,000–$100,000
