This historic 1890s farmhouse recently won a 2012 Decatur Design Award for Historic Preservation. The awards are sponsored by the City of Decatur’s Historic Preservation Commission.
This home had a myriad of exterior problems, from cracked and pitted stairs to walkways with broken and uneven pavers. We freshened up the outside by preserving as much of it as possible. We restored the concrete stairs and salvaged most of the pavers. The walkways were even created in a way to preserve the surrounding trees, so that if the roots shift in the future, the pavers can be reset. See more photos here.
