USING COMMERCIAL GRADE MATERIALS FOR RESIDENTIAL PROJECTS PAYS OFF!

What started as a simple bump-out addition ended up a masterpiece of design and creative use of materials. Originally, the plans called for wood clapboard siding, but since the home has a limestone façade, we chose to replicate the stone and intricate wood detail of the original structure. Casting templates from the existing stone, we molded our own stones, which can’t be distinguished from the originals.

East Avenue Historical Renovation Project—Adding on to a neighbor of the George Eastman House

What started as a simple bump-out addition ended up a masterpiece of design and creative use of materials. Originally, the plans called for wood clapboard siding, but since the home has a limestone façade, we chose to replicate the stone and intricate wood detail of the original structure. Casting templates from the existing stone, we molded our own stones, which can’t be distinguished from the originals.

The true Venetian Plaster walls on the interior were accented by Tiger Maple trim, which we salvaged from a local original house-parts supplier.

We chose a rubber roof system (EPDM) to protect the interior of the home and beautify the outside by bringing together the positive qualities of a commercial product and an historically appropriate copper metal-seam roofing façade.The rubber roof was overlaid with Trex decking material, so that the second floor roof can be used for an outdoor sitting area overlooking the new hand-laid cobblestone patio below.
