While 2011 has already started, I recently noticed two projects I worked on received Pasadena Heritage awards in 2010.
The Mission Revival Foursquare at 896 N. Raymond Avenue was a well-deserved Restoration Honoree. Here, a new owner wanted to cosmetically restore the home while rehabilitating the home’s systems without losing the great surviving details, including multi-lite casement windows and original Eastlake window hardware. Locks, lifts and pulleys were stripped of paint and lubricated for another century of operation. For the attic, I supplied new casement windows which replicated other originals in the home. And, for likely the first time in decades, the double hung windows were reroped, repaired and tuned.
Haskett Court, a National Register listed bungalow court, was recognized by Pasadena Heritage as a Rehabilitation Honoree for its extensive restoration and ultimate conversion to for-sale workforce housing.
I’m proud to say that I restored every window on both projects.
While it was the owners who were officially recognized by Pasadena Heritage, I’m proud to have been a part of such noteworthy projects.
