The goal of the renovation of this Charleston single house, built in 1852, was to repair and restore as much as possible in order to keep the historic characteristics and charm of the home. The interior of the space was reconfigured to allow more of an open flow and to add additional bathrooms to each of the two separate units; Each unit now includes a spacious 4 bedrooms and 3 baths. The kitchen on each floor was relocated to the front of the house in order to allow more light and to create an open living/dining space. Extreme care was taken to preserve existing wood floors, baseboards, crown molding, ceiling joists, plaster, shutters, windows and transoms. Smaller non-historic windows on the east facade and non-historic doors off the porch were removed and walls were filled in these areas. In previously covered up openings, new windows were placed to match the existing historic windows.
