Our involvement with historical groups and working with old house owners has given us the opportunity to work on public and private historical properties. It gives William great pleasure to recreate missing or damaged millwork and bring back a piece of history for everyone to enjoy. A short review of some of San Diego's architectural treasures that no longer exist is evidence of the importance of maintaining what remains.
Over the years we have encountered many wonderful old homes that do not have any historical designation but are nevertheless treasured by their owners.
Some of the historically designated properties we have worked on include:
E.E. Leighner House (1911) South Park
Judge Hertal/Hawkin House (1910) National City
Winslow R. Parsons #1 spec. house (1916) North Park
Frank Kimball House (1868) National City
1906 Lodge at Coronado Beach (1906) Coronado (Formerly Greycourt Inn)
