William Faulkner, 186-188 Whitfield Street Circa 1850
We are now in the beginning stages of our 2nd Whitfield Street project. A total Interior Renovation of the William Faulkner House Circa 1850. This project is a bit larger and more detailed than the John Hale House. Originally built as a rare "Double House" and then converted to a single family around 1975.
After first reviewing the history of the home Heritage Home Improvements will Rehabilitate the home back to a "Double House". To Rehabilitate a house means to make it useful and functional for contemporary living while preserving important historic and architectural features like exposing its 300 year old Chestnut Beams and original fireplace mantels. This rehabilitation will include new electrical, mechanical, and plumbing systems, 2 New modern kitchens, Baths, wine cellar and other attributes typical of present-day homes. Then we will be moving outside to build a garage and recreation area.
The steps to Rehabilitate this home starts with Vision. Rick from Heritage and Pete the homeowner went room to room to plan exactly whats it will look like when finished. After making a list of what was needed and coming up with a timeline, and pulling permits it was time to get started.
With a mix of demolition and deconstruction to preserve and save what we can like original historic fireplace mantels and trim the project is in its beginning stages.
