This project involved identifying and replacing lathe and plaster walls, tanking a dark, gloomy basement and turning it into an insulated and bright living space, replacing where necessary and repairing woodwork and fusing the two so you can identify the old and new, replacing beams and joists, rebuilding stairs and installing banisters and new rails, restoring and hanging original doors, fitting new door furniture.
