Rehabilitation
Year built: 
1920s

This vernacular Prairie-style stucco house from the 1920s was a boarding house before renovation.  The current owners purchased the house after it had been updated on both the exterior and interior.  The house was renovated with attention to its historic fabric and neighborhood context.  What could not was replaced with rehabilitation choices that respected the original design and were suited for family life in the 1990s.  The hipped-roof, symmetrical style of the house was preserved, as were the characteristic windows, doors, and dormer with three windows.
