The current homeowner recognized the charm that lay below the weather- worn, aluminum siding of this older home. Intent on restoring the original façade, the homeowner had the siding removed thus revealing the home’s stucco exterior. Windows and newly revealed walls were restored and shutter-like, decorative panels were set at front window edges. The total effect has been to restore a home to its original character, one that is harmonious with its neighbors.
