I'm not sure I understand the question. I have always had a deep appreciation for historic buildings. Thanks to my late mother I was blessed to notice, observe, care for and appreciate the skill and time that went into constructing these pleasing edifices. I would like for my home to be put on the Lake County Historical Society register. I can't bear to hear that a beautiful historic home is going to be raised. No matter what the condition I believe that with TLC the former grand home can be restored to its original luster. I tried to save the Western Reserve home in Willoughby near the tracks. I've forgotten the architects name but I do know that more of his homes are in Painesville, Ohio. I worked at the inception of saving Mooreland Mansion at LCC.
Yes. I've worked for the Preservation Society Of Newport County in historic Newport, RI. I worked at the Cornelius Vanderbilt Estate, The Breakers, the John Jacob Astor Estate, Beechwood, and I've done some renovation on my own Sears & Roebuck home. I watched restoration projects all over Newport and conversed with the architects and laborers asking many questions. I watched a house across from the Andrews School For Girls being moved across the schools property to come to rest on a lot on Kirkland Road.
That's a tricky one. If done by a true artisan and craftsman schooled by several generations of plaster artist then a beautiful ceiling can be produced. But forget that modern stuff that looks blown up onto the poor ceiling.
. won't take my info. Bonnie Lee Walker-Willoughby, ohio. Own a Sears & Roebuck home named The Windsor. Been in the family since 1924. Grandparents built the home.
