Scarritt House Update


The William Chick Scarritt Home, 3240 Norledge, reconstruction is progressing nicely.  Should have the roof in place by the middle of January.  Which means time from fire to re-roof just four months. The third floor is completed.  Below, sections for the reconstruction are prefabricated just a block away. I'll follow up with the raising (literally) of the roof in a couple of weeks. The home was originally built in 1888.

New At The Inn

The Inn at 425, a gorgeous 19th Century home in Historic Northeast Kansas City Missouri
Proprietors Stephan and Carl have done amazing work on this 1888 masterpiece
 New additions to the porch, shade giving awnings and great new furnishings.  

But the biggest new addition is the renovation of the Carriage House (background below).  Painstakingly restored with new amenities for guests.

The Brownstone On The Hill

 This magnificent 1888 Brownstone built for William Chick Scarritt burned yesterday.   A local television station broadcast interior pictures from before the current owners restored this masterpiece. With their permission I'm posting these pictures of what was ACTUALLY lost.   This is a tribute to the work of Larry and Susan... at least we have these memories for now. Much of the work was done by the owners themselves.  To show the interiors before any work took place with the implication that not much in terms of furnishings were lost, is awful .
 New roof, new copper gutters, restored exterior, rebuilt chimneys .
 First floor rooms.  No fire, but thousands of gallons of water and collapse damage.

 Second floor, totally lost.

 Third floor, also a total loss.

 Note the view of the Kansas City skyline out the third floor window.
