This building was easily passed up, on a busy street. Key features had been covered up, bricked over and “sanitized” over the past 100 years. A careful study of paint lines and understanding of historic precedent lead to a revitalized storefront and beautifully restored building.
New work included removing front brick veneer and discovery of original cast iron frame work. This allowed Hull Millwork to see the original orientation of doors and windows. New restoration work included adding in new historic double-hung windows on the 2nd floor, as well as new front entry doors, divided light transoms and storefronts based on period and historic precedent. Bricks were cleaned, stripped, repointed and then sealed.
