Historic Preservation can be very rewarding, and we are honored to get to dream new life into historic homes with our clients.
We suspected that there was beaded board or canvas backed wallpaper over 1x wood substrate and that this fireplace was double sided. What fun to uncover all these layers of history in the walls. Here are some progress photos from one of our clients’ 100 year old house (Restoration & Addition in progress) in Kilmichael, MS. All original materials (mantle & wood walls) will be reincorporated into the building.
