We have a small obsession with Miss Poston. Now that we have completed the demo, we have the opportunity to bring new life to this 1947 beauty. She will be modernized to current trends & safety codes, while preserving the character & charm of this 40’s era home.
This week we had Eli Electric rewire the entire home to get it to code. They also installed additional fixtures/receptacles where needed.
The entire home has had new plumbing installed, as well.
A&C Home Improvement has been busy replacing rotted & damaged wood clapboards on the exterior.
And filling in where we removed the kitchen window.
Part of the ‘fun’ with restoring these old gems are the surprises you find. Behind the plaster walls, the contractor found a section of the sill plate and studs which had rotted behind the kitchen sink area. This amazing team made quick work of the repair & luckily no delay of progress.
This adorable 861 square foot bungalow packs plenty of character in a small place. We are refinishing the original 1″ solid oak flooring through out. We are preserving the solid pine bead-board paneling (picture below). The full brick wall in the family room & the cast iron wood stove will remain in the home to add to the warmth & charm of Miss Poston.
This week, we are expecting all Sheetrock to be installed. We have redesigned the kitchen and will be ordering the cabinets, countertops, & appliances for this space. We also have energy efficient vinyl replacement windows & insulated steal raised panel doors on order.
We are expecting to show you our progress in our next blog.
