SECTION 01

THE RESTORATION OF AN AMERICAN CLASSIC Integrity Custom views each project holistically. The end result is a home that is functional and beautiful, allowing you to live your best life. With an historical restoration, we maintain the character and charm of the original structure while adding our clients’ desires for their dream spaces. PHASES OF AN INTEGRITY CUSTOM RESTORATION Phase One includes vision casting for your dream home. Together, we turn your vision into a plan. We partner with a team of architects to assist in design, and engineers to assess the structural needs of your home. We come up with a master plan that neatly lays out the project. Phase Two is the nuts and bolts of the build. It’s not sexy. It’s the takingthings-apart-to-make-them-better phase and it consists of all the rough-in work such as plumbing, electrical, insulation, moving walls, and re-engineering. It’s messy and dirty, and we’re great at it! Phase Three is FUN. The is the trim-out phase, otherwise knows as thelight-at-the-end-of-the-tunnel phase! We put in the cabinets, tile, sheetrock and more. The master plan for Phase One begins to take shape and your house begins to look like your dream home. This is when you can bring your friends over for a sneak peek. Phase Four is the proofing phase. We hand you a big roll of blue tape, and you walk through, looking for imperfections or things you may want to change. We have a punchlist and we check off all the boxes before we wipe away the last layer of dust and leave you to enjoy your new home.

The entire front porch flooring was taken out and repoured. The new concrete was acid washed and refinished to blend in to the existing concrete and structure. All walkways leading up to the home including the entire driveway were repaired in the same fashion.

405 Louisiana was designed as a traditional American Four Square. But the bricked exterior, curve detailing of the windows and extravagant molding are details you would see in the Italian Villa style homes being built around the same time.

Each window was removed, repaired and restored with the original pulleys, ropes & weights. All open and close just as they did when the house was originally built.

A HOME OF INTENTIONAL MOMENTS We took great care in creating moments around every corner. The original shiplap was left exposed on the ceiling, and painted in other areas. A well known local artist was commissed to historically faux paint the walls in the downstairs office.

At some point in the history of the home, the original shiplap and muslin wallpaper was covered with sheetrock. The original trim was partially cut to install it. We found a piece of the original trim in it’s entirety and replicated it using custom made knives and salvaged wood. All doors and windows received new historically accurate trim. The molding and baseboards were also repaired or recreated. The original flooring was repaired and refinished. Downstairs floors are oak and upstairs are heart pine. The fireplace is orginal to the home. The tiles were cleaned and a new cap was put on the chimney. New gas lines were run and it’s now ready for chilly evenings. All new sheetrock with a smooth finish was installed. The orginal lights were removed, cleaned and rewired.

This singlular chair by the fireplace is the current owner’s favorite spot to read every morning. Surrounded by the coziness of the restored fireplace, and the views from the front of the house to the back, it’s a spot that provides a peaceful and connected moment for the homeowner every day.

Concrete patterned tile was a fun way for the homeowner to add a modern touch to a downstairs bath. The cast iron bathtub is original to the home. Bead board, trim and molding were repaird and/or added. The shiplap was also original to this room; we removed it from the walls, and flipped it, to expose the clean side. Out of three bathrooms the downstairs maintained the orginal layout and bathtub. The other two were completley redesigned to add in separate shower, vanity and bathing areas.

Integrity Custom’s preferred designers worked with the homeowner to provide perfect paint colors for every room. At one point, we had over 20 swatches of grays on the the kitchen walls! The master bathroom (right) was a labor of love. We combined two bedrooms & two closets to provide the master suite, complete with a beautiful master bath. The addition of a modern soaking tub and removal of walls required re-engineering of the second floor and roof.

The master bathroom boasts a modern soaking tub, separate shower, double vanity & walk in closet. Two bedrooms and two closets were combined to create this space and the rest of the master suite.

Over 90% of the shiplap is original to the home. It was removed and flipped to show the side with less wear. The shiplap was sanded and stained, exposing the beauty of the its long history. It is now ready for 100 more years of moments and memories. The stairwell (left) is a favorite feature of the home for the homeowners. We repaired and replaced any partial molding, and resanded the treads and banisters, allowing the beauty of the timeless design to shine through. A prominent piece of artwork is displayed at the top of the stairs creating a moment when you reach the landing.

An antique transom window in the upstairs hallway allows a steady stream of light to beam through. Many of the light fixtures are original to the home. During the restoration, they were removed, stored, cleaned and rewired.

SECTION 04

A KITCHEN TO COOK & LIVE IN What was once a tiny outdated kitchen, became so much more. Using modern subway tile, restored original shiplap, open shelves, a high performance stove, coffee bar and eat in nook, every inch of this space is designed with intention and for joyful living.

We combined two full rooms and a storage space under the stairs to create the kitchen. The AC unit was relocated for additional space as well. To create larger spaces, cabinets were pushed into the walls instead of coming out from the walls.

Historic homes traditionally lack storage. We found ways to increase storage space in the kitchen by adding drawers to the dine-in banquette seating. Wraparound windows bathe this area in natural light and provide views to the backyard. The original curved shelves on a kitchen wall were restored. We added the interior shelves, at just the right spacing, to align with the doors to create a clean look.

Outdoor spaces were designed for gathering and entertaining. An outdoor grill is surrounded in stone similar to the color of the exterior brick. Iron gates were added for safety and backyard zoning. Great Gardens landscaping company aided Integrity Custom in the redesign.

The pool was re-piped with all new pool equipment. We also added the spa with waterfall feature, sundecks flanking both sides of the pool and a built in grill. All of the sitting areas were created with new concrete and acid washed.
