Season 2, Episode 4

Washington, D.C.: 1915 Row-House Porch and Transom

Amanda and her friend, Nicole, want to take care of some restoration problems on Amanda's 1915 Eckington neighborhood row house. The first thing one notices when looking at her porch is that the left hand side sags a little. Restoration Realities will determine what has caused the problem and fix it. Rebuilding or replacing the ledge beam and then reattaching the box beam in a new anchor system should solve the problem. Replacing the original ceiling bead board where we needed to remove it will complete the project.

Inside the three bedroom home, Amanda has discovered she has transoms that have been painted shut. She would like to restore them to their original condition. After learning the various techniques and applications of paint stripping, Nicole will tackle this project. A working transom complete and the old porch restored brings this episode of Restoration Realities to a happy conclusion.
