This is a staging project I did for Deborah Stewart. Deborah is a real estate agent and investor with an eye for houses that can become homes and a passion to bring cut-up or abused houses back to a home with all the comforts.
The house had served many years as a rooming house. A lot of work had to be done repair the damage from neglect and to convert the house back to a single-family dwelling. The replacement windows came out; period windows went back in. Original brass fixtures, hidden by layers of paint over the years, were being stripped and polished. The kitchen was completely new; the second floor had heating and cooling. Once the construction dust was cleared away, Deborah had restored an absolutely perfect 1918 Arts & Crafts Bungalow. That's when I worked by magic.
