Detroit’s most beautiful homes of 2019

Our Avery Street rehab in Woodbridge made the list of most beautiful homes this year. So very proud!

When we started the project, 95 people out of 100 would have probably said it should be torn down. Just goes to show that almost nothing is beyond saving. Just one more pre-war structure that won't end up in the landfill.

It's important to see that Detroit is increasingly viewed favorably in comparison to other cities around the country: "That means more capital, more jobs and more redevelopment coming to Detroit," Detroit Future City Executive Director Anika Goss said.

There will be a lot more of this type of design in the future. Multi-generational housing is also a good way to mitigate the increasing cost of housing.

The home turns a wheelchair ramp into a central design feature, and in doing so acknowledges the needs of the mixed households of the future.

New fiber cement siding complete and ready for paint! This was painstaking work— each board cut individually to follow the contours of the original sheathing and produce the correct “reveal,” the part of each board that shows. The gables feature a scallop and sawtooth design copied from the original.

Beautiful day for a new roof! We’re tearing off (at least...) 5 layers of shingles and the original cedar shake which had rotted through. Trust the process!! 🏡Polymath Development - Provenance Detroit Cinnaire #woodbridgerenovation #oldhouselove #thisplacematters

Installing new structural beam at the Woodbridge project today. The old 8x8 beam that was cracked is no more. Water damage and neglect can do a lot of bad things to houses. In this case we have to raise a section of the house 4.5 inches to get back to level.

Some before photos of a new project. Pretty scary looking now. What do you think? Saveable?

We think so. It is our second go around with the Woodbridge Neighborhood Development Corporation on a major remodel. It's got some major structural issues, but it also has some original charm that we are bringing back. And you know it will be amazing when we are done.

Taking the most rundown house on the block and making it shine? Well, that's what we do!
