This historic home in the heart of Southport, Ct. was dealt a near fatal blow by Hurricane Irene when a beech tree split and fell through its roof, damaging 3 floors of antique living space. Restoring the home required sourcing antique lumber materials and recreating historically accurate trim, windows and doors. Our experienced timber framers, flooring experts and seasoned finished carpenters worked to restore the home allowing for plumbing, electrical, HVAC and insulation upgrades.
