The George Merck House
In this project, we restored
the bedroom wing of the house.
The house was built of coral rock,
and over the years the moisture had deteriorated the plaster. Here you see
the loose white coat plaster has been removed
The master bedroom.
Getting ready to plaster.
Same room, finished.
This is the hallway in the bedroom
wing. It opens to the master bedroom and guest room and a shared bath.
The paint was chipped and repainted many times. The owner wanted a high gloss finish; which meant a lot of putting and sanding.
Door from master bedroom to the hall.
The finished doors. I repaired the
mortise locks and made keys for them.
The hinges were stripped of
paint and restored to bright brass.
Here, we are removing wallpaper;
many layers of paper. You can see
the wall through the door, as it's
panels were kicked in.
Same door restored.
