This period restoration of a 1909 Arts & Crafts home in Mount Washington was restored from teardown condition in six months. While recreating and restoring the original elements of the home, DGC also incorporated new building practices and systems—such as current engineering standards, waterproofing methods and drainage systems—to ensure that the house would survive for several centuries. In addition to the restoration, a new master bathroom has replaced the previous closet and spare bedroom on the top floor of this three-story home.
