Inside The Restoration

The restoration of the fire-damaged home of William Chick Scarritt is proceeding nicely. The roof is now complete and installation of windows has begun..the curved ones for the tower should arrive soon.  All HVAC and plumbing is finished and the electrical will be complete today 10/15/17. The house was built in 1887 and was extensively damaged by fire in September of 2016
 The fire took out the second and third floors and caused heavy collapse and water damage to the first floor.  Above and below are views from the second floor balcony of the William Wallace house next door and the KC Skyline.   This balcony will be off the master bath.

 Above, the view from the newly installed third floor windows looking south west toward downtown.
 Above, the owners, Larry and Susan, acquired the mantel from a monastery in France..which was constructed around 1820.  The stone piece at the top is from Belgium.  Below, this is the new third floor.

 Above, the carriage house in the rear where the couple are living until the third floor is finished.  Below, the third floor looking south toward the front of the house.

 Above, another view of the third floor which has three fireplaces.... Fireplace number two is below and even has a pizza oven up top.

 First floor, front rooms.  Floors have been removed to repair the joists.  There was a lot of work needed to repair the beams and to clean out mold.  This room, above and below,  is on the southwest corner of the house. The decorative ceiling piece is from France.

                            Above, another ceiling piece to be installed which has come from India.
 Above and below, the front parlor next to the entrance.  The original stain-glass has been removed and is being repaired in St. Joseph.  Parquet flooring with wood from Europe and Russia has arrived and is ready to be installed on the first and second floors.

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.

Historic Northeast Mini-Mansions Volume 4

Built in 1901 this home has been lovingly restored in Pendleton Heights.  
Original wood throughout...unpainted.
 Old and new in harmony.

 The homeowners did the remodel design and most of the work themselves. 

 Secret play area under the front stairs.

 Master bedroom has french doors out to the sleeping porch.

 The home was cut up into three apartments in the 1940s.. the restoration left only the third floor apartment intact... but it too was remodeled. (Above and below)

 Awesome view from the third floor balcony. 
 Above looking southwest, below looking northeast.  Garfield School on the left.
This will be coming on the market soon... through Eric B. and Associates.
