West Urbana, IL
A lot of love went into this extensive exterior restoration project. The vinyl siding covering up the original stucco and wooden shakes was the first to go, follow by restoration of the original sleeping porch, which had been turned into a half bathroom. Much of the front porch floor framing was supported while new support beams were installed and masonry piers replaced. Compromised and missing stucco was dealt with, rotted trim and porch ceiling board were repaired, and all gable end shakes were replaced and sealed with a rich and almost iridescent blue-green stain.
