Thorn Restoration & Renovation is a residential and commercial construction business committed to preserving historic construction and creating quality craftsmanship. We offer antique home restoration, barn dismantling or restoration, home remodeling, custom cabinetry, decks and additions.
Old homes are durable. The best thing to do is to restore the old floors, doors, and some of the old plaster walls.
Antique homes have small rooms and little storage. The experience of working with small rooms and knowing how to add storage areas without taking up too much space has been beneficial to residential projects. In addition, I try to add wainscoting, classic crown molding, and some of the staples of antique homes that can add character and charm to newer homes.
In older homes, lines are not straight, the rooms are smaller, and there is little storage. We have to make adjustments when renovating an antique home to ensure we're fixing and adding elements that don't take away from the originality of the home and don't cover up classic features.
I recycle antique fixture, doors, and windows as much as possible. I also try to leave old windows and just add double pane glass so old windows are still being used but are offering the proper insulation.
