Court St.

This historic home in downtown Howell was in need of new siding. We removed the old siding & installed real wood clapboard siding. Our goal was to give the home an update but still stay period correct with our renovations. The homeowners chose to paint or stain the exterior themselves. Wood has time-tested, timeless quality that does not go out of style. Residing a house with wood shingles or real wood clapboard is not nearly as easy as it was 100 years ago. Not every contractor knows how to apply them properly; luckily we do & we are here to help. Call us for help with your historic...

Clinton St. Historic Porch Reconstruction...

This project began in 2006 when the homeowner approached us regarding putting the wraparound porch back on his 1916 home in the City of Howell. The owners were visited by a niece of the original owners & she brought a picture taken in the 1920’s showing the original owners on the wraparound porch. The porch was removed in the 1950’s for some reason. We had to jump through some hoops at City Hall to get the setbacks ordinance rewritten & then construction began. Samples of the original skirting were duplicated & the porch was replicated solely based on the old pictures & witness marks of the original porch. The restoration of the curved porch was a cost effective way to greatly enhance the aesthetic appeal and the market value of the home. It also added functional value to the home by restoring a useful space for the entire family...
