This site exists to document the restoration of Circle Oaks, a home built prior to 1889 (we're still digging up records). I
plan on having photos and videos of all the ugly things we find inside the walls and under the floors. I will constantly
update the site for the next four or five years as progress occurs. I'll show the problems and what I did to fix them. More
importantly, I will explain my selection of replacement building materials based on quality, reputation and my own brand of
testing. It will be a real balancing act trying to preserve the majestic historical look & feel of this grand lady while
selecting low-to-no maintenance building materials. The goal on a renovation project of this magnitude is to do it once.
You can tell where there has been a fix over a patch over a little cover-up throughout the buildings on the property.
That insanity must stop if we are to save this property.
