Los Angeles: 1912 Arts-and-Crafts Bungalow Restoration

Heather and David Chiu were newlyweds when they decided they were tired of renting and wanted to own an old fixer-upper. They found a 1912 arts-and-crafts bungalow that was nearly on its last leg. Covered in asbestos tile and half falling down, it was right in their price range. Undeterred by the amount of work, and inexperienced in it as well, the couple launched into a major restoration. Their hard work has prevailed, and the once derelict house has regained its dignity and charm.

Their exterior restoration was complete, except for a heavy and unsightly iron bar security door. Restoration Realities shows up to help them remove it and craft a period appropriate screen door out of Douglas fir. Restoration Realities will also help the Chiu's restore a period appropriate window and door weather stripping to eliminate those drafty California nights.
