Restoration Meets History
A house with a colorful history on the tipping edge of being potentially lost forever. Restoric documents those properties that fall into the category of “I would love to save it, but…”.

The cottage is remarkably unchanged from the day it was built, standing on wooden posts, no insulation, floor to ceiling bead board, the classic reading porch and of course windows and walls that howl the storms of the sea.
