This tudor revival / arts & crafts home has so many great features – original art glass windows, symmetry, pleasing proportions, and one of its greatest attributes is thoughtful owners who are doing all they can to take it back to its original glory. Build has been fortunate to be involved in a number of projects with them on this heritage home.
A new cedar roof, copper gutters and proper wooden storm windows have all come about due to the desire for originality.
The color and texture of the traditional rug brick, cedar weathering to perfection and copper all work together – natural, traditional materials in harmony with each other.
This street houses some of the biggest and most elaborate homes in the area but this tidy bungalow, by my definition of what makes a house great, has it all.
From the owners of this great home, Craig and Beth Martin:
Many thanks Rory for posting photos of our house on your blog including the well written descriptions.
We appreciate working with someone who shares the same values as we have and along with your staff takes the time and care to "Build" it right. Our hope is that others will get the message and take the time and effort it requires to restore and respect the architecture of their home.
I am a licensed carpenter,
