The Siskin

A mid-remodel rescue

How do we find our project properties? Well, they say birds of a feather flock together! We love building real relationships with our sellers and work to create win-win solutions for everyone involved. ⁠⠀

This property came to us mid-remodel when the owner was exhausted by the long and expensive project. He reached out just because of our name! Why? Because he and his wife were birders! That fun introduction has led to a long-term, mutually beneficial relationship.⁠⁠

Extensive work had already been done and numerous upgrades had been made to the inside. As one of the oldest homes in the neighborhood (it was built in 1909), we wanted to make sure the exterior of the home stayed as true to its history as possible. We kept the siding, millwork, and even the doorknobs! The windows needed replacing, so we commissioned custom wood-frame, double-hung replacements to match the originals. ⁠

To finish off the interior, we opened the kitchen to the living room, upgraded the fireplace, remodeled the bathrooms, and finished the work the previous owner had planned. In the end, this beautiful Craftsman retained the exterior charm that we loved, while providing modern amenities and finishes for the next generation to enjoy.
