Matt & Catherine Prescott worked really hard with architect Ron Berkowitz to tuck this gem onto a 25′ wide lot in town. We had to build a walk bridge across Cornett Creek to access the house from Galena. This house is 8 levels and has great detail in every room. We used recycled barn wood as we do with a lot of projects for the siding and flooring. The completed project looks like its been there for 100 years.
This is the Project we won the historical preservation award for in 2013. We re-purposed everything that we removed from the original building. The chimney brick became the backsplash in the kitchen and entry floor. The roofing became the skirting around the bottom. The wood removed from the inside we built all the cabinets out of. We used the skip sheathing on the roof to mill up the wood flooring. We matched the interior trim to the only original piece that was left. We re-used the original door and re-built it to be taller. Almost all the finished products were created from material recycled from the original structure.
