The owners of The Frank Wenban Home utilized original blueprints to maintain the historical integrity of their home while creating the perfect example of how an historic home can meet the needs of a modern family beautifully. Great care was taken throughout the project to match moldings, details, and hardware to the original structure, including those in an addtion added at the rear of the house.  The original detached garage incorporates elements of the house and appears as a small cottage set in a lovely garden.
