  • 2013 Decatur Design Award, Historic Preservation — This 1920s bungalow, at one time converted into an improvised duplex and in serious disrepair, today combines modern amenities with a deep appreciation for historic character and charm.

The finished home, including the 600 square ft. rear addition, is approximately 2,500 square ft. with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The mix of old and new elements blend seamlessly within the finished product.
