Restoration of original 1890 Victorian red brick home

The first step of the restoration project was to remove angel stone that had been applied to the facing of our heritage red brick Victorian row house by a previous owner in 1979. The second step included sourcing bricks to match the original red brick facade and then rebuilding the damaged original decorative and other brickwork and tuck pointing. The final step was to source stone window sills to replace the original wooden ones. We were not able to find ready made sills that we liked so Michael custom made window sills out of some stone of our choosing, cutting them all down to size, chipping the stone to remove the straight edge cuts, and then installing them beautifully. The finished product is unbelievable and the colour match on the replacement bricks sourced by Michael is incredible.
