Edwardian House Remodels

This Edwardian House built 1908, has often called on my services. The clients have had a series of interior and exterior remodelling projects, every year for the last 3 years.

  • Edwardian Remodel - Plinths & Urns: classic Garden by Paul D'Amico Remodels

    Edwardian Remodel—Plinths & Urns

    The Yorkstone was too large for the brick plinth and thus I suggested to use decorative brickwork to cantelever the difference. This drawing is the final one and made after the client and I visited 2 reclamation yards and found stone diamond stretchers. These were framed by red and black quarry tiles cantilevered above the existing brickwork. The Yorkstone now had the right size base.

  • Tiling Edwardian Porch: classic Houses by Paul D'Amico Remodels

    Tiling Edwardian Porch

    The client had been looking for yellow and reds that corresponded more faithfully with the original Edwardian geometric tiles. I proposed Winckelmans 'geometric' tiles because they are fully vitrified and thus frost resistant - the colours matched, if one takes into account that the inner Porch ones have acquired patina and it’s darker. I proposed to use a 10x10cms format to improve proportion relationship; I felt the 15x15 cms were too large to follow the existing 7.6x7.6 cms tile. The Winckelmans's tiles are vitrified, waterproof and frost resistance. The original concrete base was primed, a layer of levelling compound was poured and troweled to improve tile adherence and reduce porosity. Waterproof and frost resistance adhesive and grout were used to avoid the recurrence of frost shattering. Finally, 1mm tile spacers were used to be more faithful to the virtual grout less lines of the Edwardian tiles.

  • Restoring Edwardian Summer House - Before : classic Garden by Paul D'Amico Remodels

    Restoring Edwardian Summer House—Before

    This Edwardian summer house required attention. The roof felt, some timber sheeting and the timber mouldings around the eaves needed replacing.  The flatness of the front part of the roof encouraged stagnating water puddles. I increased the gradient of the flatter front part of the roof and made it project beyond the timber wall. This will ensure water to run-off and drop to the ground instead of wetting the wall and possibly infiltrating the wall. 

    The new decorative timber mouldings support the roof projection and replicate the original feature. Lead sheeting protects the rim of the timber sheeting. Finally there were originally 2 finials but one was completely rotten - a twin replica was ordered. I made a CAD drawing with all the measurements and specifications and Artisan Tim turned a perfect hardwood copy. I replaced the door frame, timber weather bar and other bits of timber. Maybe next year my client will want to restore the decorative floral ridge.
