This 1930’s house was once a caretaker’s cottage for Henry Ford’s winter residence in Savannah, GA. It had been abandoned for decades. Historical Concepts, an architectural and planning firm, was consulted to help with the restoration of the 800 square foot cottage. The owners wanted to save it from demolition and help preserve Henry Ford’s legacy.
Original poplar tongue and groove walls, heart pine floors and terra cotta roof tiles were restored, while antique lighting and architectural salvage finds were added for period authenticity.
The results are stunning! Take a peek at this wonderful restoration project and go to Historical Concepts Houzz Page for more information about this project!
