After suffering severe water damage and on
the verge of collapse, this Chicago Landmark district homeís
front porch was required to be reconstructed to its historic
design. Without original documentation, an appropriate design
was crafted after reviewing details from neighboring buildings
including one believed to be designed by the same architect
over 100 years ago.
With design and material approval by Chicago Landmarks, reproduced
details were carved into new stone components while existing
brick was salvaged and cleaned for reinstallation. The projectís
success lies in that it appears to have always existed.
