Work performed while at Meadors Inc.
While at Meadors, Laura served as designer & project manager for this project. Roles included client design meetings, construction drawings, estimating & cost analysis, interior architecture (finishes, fixtures & cabinets), and construction administration.
Scope of Work:
After years of deferred maintenance, this 1820 Charleston Single House needed complete restoration.
Although no photos of the original piazza entry to the porch existed, footings discovered during construction confirmed its existence. With detailed research, a piazza entry was designed and built, fitting for this Federal style masonry single house. Portions of the porch were carefully taken apart and repaired, to retain much of the historic fabric. Each exterior window and door was repaired using traditional methods.
Inside, the plaster was restored and the wood wainscot paint was stripped to reveal beautiful hand-carved mouldings. Bathrooms were renovated and a new kitchen rounded out the renovation.
Attention to detail and study of historic elements was critical in restoring this home.
