Brownstone Renewal Ongoing

 The William Chick Scarritt home (1887) continues it's return to glory with new, upper floor, windows.  Special order thermal since they are curved.  Only two panes left to install.  This house has come a long, long way since it burned a year and a half ago.

William Chick Scarritt House - Update

Gutted by fire a year and a half ago, the mansion at 3240 Norledge in Northeast Kansas City is slowly returning to its glory.   The curved windows in the "tower" are now being installed.  There is only one factory in the United States that will make to order curved, thermal windows.  It is is Arkansas.  It took a while for those to arrive.  The home was constructed in 1887 for William Chick Scarritt, son of Nathan Scarritt who owned most of the land in the immediate vicinity.

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.
