An Old House Story

1926 Cape Cod

1926 Cape Cod in Grand Blanc MI
We are restoring this Cape Cod to its original condition. This meant removing 1960 and 1970 'improvements' LOL

We currently are working on re-shingling the outside and replacing the Andersen casement windows that were added to the south side. We are using all wood restoration windows that look like the original windows in the rest of the house.

The house has some Flint Faience Tile.

The grey color is the original color. The original roof was dark green cedar shakes but in the 90s it was removed and replaced with dark green asphalt shingles.

The house retains it hand hammered wrought iron decorative trim on three exterior doors of which one is a Dutch door.
