Wilmington, NC: Hurricane-Damage Repair

Restoration Realities visits Wilmington, North Carolina and the home of Doug and Karan Witt. Located in the main historic district downtown, their Victorian style home was originally built in 1885 and then rebuilt in 1898 after a fire. Doug is a contractor doing historic restoration work, and is known as, "the mayor of Old Wilmington". Their house was in good condition when they bought it, mostly needing some general maintenance and painting. Then in 1966, Hurricane Fran damaged many homes in Wilmington -- including Doug and Karan's. When our hosts Bill Click and Chris Babcock arrive, the owners are asking for help with two projects: repair and re-install shutters blown off by the hurricane, then re-create and install missing and damaged decorative porch brackets.
