The owner, an interior designer, hired us to build an historically accurate addition for her Greek Revival style home. We tore down the existing garage, framed the structure, installed windows and trim, and shingled the exterior. To integrate the new addition to the existing house, we meticulously recreated the trim details of the original structure. The wide frame and panel style corner boards and elaborate “capitals” at the intersection of the roof to the walls, along with the wide frieze boards and fascia trim, are in keeping with the Greek Revival style of the main house. This level of trim detailing is labor intensive and needs to be done carefully to ensure the longevity of the completed project. By installing pre-dipped Grade “A” cedar shingles for the siding, back-priming all the trim, and using the highest quality paint, we further ensured the longevity of the exterior. Over ten years later, the addition continues to look clean and well built.
