This beautiful 1902 house sits on the second highest point in Elgin. We were charged with returning the front fa├žade of this house to it's former glory. That would be an impossible task if it weren't for the fact we had a secret weapon - the original plans from the builder. The project was performed over two years in two phases. Part 1 of this project was the first-floor porch.
