Wood Frame Restoration: The Bracketed Porch

New money revitalizes the South Slope.     297 15th Street's freshly bracketed porch and crisply painted facade shine.  This ornamented South Slope wood frame restoration is brought to you by the Brooklyn architectural firm Ellis + Donnelly Studio and builder/general contractor,  B.O.S.S. Associates, Inc.

For so many years these wooden homes have been stripped bare of their crowning jewels by homeowners promised cheap maintenance free solutions against the ravages of time by fast talking tin men and faux-stone stucco-teers. 
I get a lot of emails asking if I know someone with the skills and talent to perform a historic style full face lift.  This team seems more than capable.

I really like this renovation too. This house is owned by Dan Goldstein of Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn fame, and the renovation included an extension in the back. Unfortunately for him, his neighbor (a former ECB official) fought the construction at every step, but in the end it was done properly and legally, so that was that. Love to see these old wood frame houses freed from their siding entombments.
