The main entrance of this house was moved to the side by a previous owner. The clients wanted to return the entrance to the front. This required approval from the city agency that oversees historic homes. Approval was contingent on returning specific historic architectural details that had been removed. These included replacing the brick columns with historically accurate wood columns; replacing the short windows with full height windows; installing pediments over the doors and windows; and replacing the doors with a door that was more in line with the period during which the house was built, approximately 1910.
