Restoring History, LLC

Restoring History is a consulting business, and our focus is the restoration of period buildings ranging from the Victorian Era through the Mid-Century Modern period. Our extensive research and outreach guides many building owners and contractors through the often confusing process of historical renovation. We also maintain an extensive network of professionals in our field. Our goal is to achieve a restoration that returns the historic integrity back to a building, while also addressing the specific needs of our clients.

The Heart Of The Period

In order to offer the best possible knowledge base, we hold a large collection of period resources. Our library includes period books on interior design, trade catalogs, period photographs, salesman samples & design models, examples of period wallpapers, and numerous other items to help illustrate the various nuances of period design.

Kitchen Brilliance

We also understand that people generally don’t want to live in a museum, thus we strive to incorporate the modern amenities that people want in their homes, while still achieving the look and feel of a chosen period as closely as possible. Kitchens and bathrooms are often the most re-muddled spaces in a historic home, and we often are focused on those areas.
