Myers Constructs Wins 2017 NARI CotY Regional Award for Restoration

Myers Constructs is honored to have been named the NARI 2017 CotY Regional Winner for Residential Historical Renovation/Restoration Under $250,000 in Region 1 Northeast. The unique structure restored in this project — which was part of a comprehensive whole-home renovation — is a bay capped by a multifaceted cupola that extends above the roofline from the second floor of the side of an early 1900s twin rowhome in Philadelphia’s Fairmount neighborhood. The structure had some pre-existing failing structural elements that were further damaged by a falling tree.

In approaching the restoration, we retained the original roof structure, including the unusual exposed ceiling ribs with beadboard, and put supports in place while all of the structure was rebuilt. We added additional support where needed, installed insulation that exceeded code requirements, and duplicated millwork in both size and location. The project also included new Queen Anne windows, restored stained glass windows, a traditional soldered copper roof, and custom wrought iron brackets. Where definitive information was missing to guide our process, we researched neighboring structures and coordinated with the Philadelphia Historical Commission to create appropriate solutions.
