Work on this property earned the



from the City of Frederick for 

Bricks and Mortar Rehabilitation


Scope of Work:


The subject property was purchased July 13, 2015.  


The original structure was built in 1880.  It had been vacant for a number of years, with some renovations begun, but not completed.   

The house was a 2 story brick structure with 928 square feet and a dirt cellar.


There were two rooms on the main level (living room and kitchen) and two bedrooms and a bath upstairs.  We added a 10 x 12 2 story addition to the rear of the house to create a more functional floor plan.  The first floor now has a living room, kitchen, dining area, half bath and pantry.  The upstairs has two master suites each with their own bath and a shared laundry.  The basement floor was dug down to create better headroom and then concreted.  

A new roof, new wood windows, all new heating and cooling, all new electric, and all new plumbing were installed.  The outside got a fresh coat of paint, and a new balcony off the upstairs hallway.    

The original fireplace was restored, and a gas log set installed in the living room.  

Where possible, original floors were refurbished.  Most of the first floor wood was badly rotted, so was replaced with in-kind salvaged wood.
