Beacon Hill: Gutting & Reframing

As we continue to track the process of construction of our Beacon Hill project, we will start today by sharing with you the gutting and reframing of the existing home. To see our before/after shots of this project for an overview of the work done please click here.

We quickly learned that the existing floors of the home were in disrepair. They were sloped in various directions and it would have been extremely difficult to guarantee proper installation of the elevator. The floors were removed, new joists were installed, and we were off and running.

Let’s Talk About Linen

Clients often ask me what the best uses for different fabrics are and how to properly care for them. So let’s start off with linen.

Linen has a great hand (or feel) to it and can be used for upholstery or draperies. It is one of the oldest textiles around with evidence of its use going back thousands of years. It is primarily produced in Western Europe, namely Belgium, Italy, and Ireland. Linen is produced from fibers derived from the flax plant and is very labor intensive to produce, hence it can be a more expensive option.
