Second Empire Renovation

I could have sworn I had a picture of this house before it was recently fixed up on the third floor.

Damaged by the famous tornado, it was just simple brick. At first I didn’t like the idea of the house removing that later addition, since it could be seen as historic too, but the finished product is amazing. Great job on the renovators’ part.

    This is much, much, better than what one normally sees with new additions as it sticks to the style/era of the main house without wandering into the generic “Victorian” trap that so many renovations fall victim to. The
    tornado is part of the history of this house now, too, so it can be argued this addition is just as valid as the brick addition it replaces.

    Definitely not a “bad mansard.”
