HistoricSpecs

For The Swan Company owner, Carol Hanson, it all began in 1979 with the purchase of an 1876 Italianate row house on Golden Gate Avenue in San Francisco. "It had picture rail molding, but the only place that carried the appropriate hangers (Woolworth's) went out of business before I got there. So I said 'Ok, I can do this myself'. Figuring that I wasn’t the only person that would miss Woolworth, I ran a very tiny ad in Victorian Homes Magazine. That describes the birth of the 'Picture Hanging Paraphernalia'. What came next was the picture rail molding. In 1989, we began construction of a new old house using mostly architectural salvage. That’s when I stumbled on 'Gesso' picture rail molding. By some miracle I found enough at a salvage yard to do our entire house. But I was in love with it and wanted to share it with others. I used scrap pieces on my website to display my picture rail hooks. Big mistake…as people thought I had it for sale, and I ended up disappointing a lot of them. But that’s when my quest began to learn as much as I could about it. It led me on a long (and many times disappointing) road, but I just couldn’t get it out of my mind. So now, a mere 25 years later, I am able to offer the world authentic Gesso Picture Rail Molding. Yes the real thing…plaster on wood and, best of all, it’s made in the USA".

Decorators Supply Corporation

Decorators Supply Corporation traces its history back to 1883 when the original founders, Simon Strahn and Richard C. Foster, established a partnership to manufacture "artistic decorative accessories". An old lease document dated April 13, 1890 describes the company as a carving and guilders business. By 1893, Decorators Supply had blossomed into a manufacturer of cast ornamental plaster. Decorators Supply became one of the manufacturers of the mouldings that would adorn the buildings and halls showcased in the Columbian Exhibition of 1893. These buildings, embellished with ornamental plaster, became known as the "White City". This World's Fair of 1893 attracted a wealth of world class artists, sculptors, carvers and craftsmen to Chicago. Decorators Supply drew from this rich talent pool of German, Italian and Polish artisans who, over the following four decades, would create the artistic legacy seen today in our product offerings. Decorator Supply Corporation's place in American decorative history is reinforced weekly by calls from clients who, hoping to restore their historic homes and furnishing, find our catalogs and products an unparalleled resource.

Vixen Hill Mfg. Co.

Since 1980 Vixen Hill has reinvented many products of yesteryear. In 1992 the Three Season Porch System was introduced for people who loved outdoor living … without the pestilence of bugs or the discomfort of inclement weather. Unlike four season rooms, the Vixen Hill Porch System was designed to maintain that "traditional porch feeling". The design was based on old-fashioned wooden screen doors where screens could be exchanged with storm glass. Vixen Hill took the Three Season Porch design further by making porch wall panels that not only accepted screens and glass, but also architectural inserts - providing the flexibility of both a screened porch and a true three season room. Vixen Hill’s modular porch design, coupled with diverse design options, allows customers to match any historic building. Whether in Vermont, South Carolina, Alabama or Tennessee, nothing will serve your screened porch needs better than a Vixen Hill Porch System. Don’t settle for a sun deck, sunroom or open porch when you can have the convenience and beauty of a Vixen Hill Three Season Porch.

Historic buildings often evoke a strong sense of nostalgia within a community or organization, but the old windows in these buildings can be a major source of energy loss that keeps utility bills high. Replacement windows, however, are not always an option due to factors such as window cost, architectural integrity issues and the potential loss of possible historic tax credits. Installing the Thermolite Window System is easy, allows the existing historical windows to remain and will maintain the beauty and character of your historic building. Since 1979, Thermolite has been a leading innovator in supplemental interior window systems. We are a GSA-certified contractor and work with governmental agencies, the U.S. military, commercial renovators, hospitality facilities and historic preservation projects. Our patented Thermolite Window System is a one-of-a-kind alternative to traditional replacement windows. This 100% customized window system is designed to provide superior protection against bomb blast, audio espionage and hurricanes while reducing noise, sealing the building envelope and preserving historic architectural integrity.

Innerglass windows are "The Perfect Storm" for insulating historic homes and buildings. The standards that define a "historic" home or building are very specific. The original window units are part of the building’s historic integrity and replacement of these windows is strongly discouraged. The guidelines specifically say, "If the original windows are in place, repair and retrofit of these windows is preferred." That’s where Innerglass comes in. Because our windows compression-fit inside of the stops of the primary window, there is no need to disturb the integrity of the original windows. And because each of our windows are custom made to fit the exact measurements of each window, they are extremely efficient for windows that are no longer square, which is very often the case with historic homes and buildings.

Wind River Timberframes

Wind River Timberframes designs, erects and encloses custom, traditionally joined timber frame homes in the Southwestern U.S., the Rocky Mountains, and as far away as Pennsylvania and Alaska. While there are many choices in timber frame companies, the experience of working with Wind River Timberframes is unique. Located on the western edge of Southwest Colorado’s San Juan Mountains, we are an intentionally small company of employees with roots in other professions who were drawn by the art and craftsmanship of timber framing. The same, close-knit team is intimately involved in every project from start to finish, often camping and living together on the job site until the frame is completed. Like our company, every Wind River timber frame is unique, hand-cut with mallets and chisels, the timeless tools of the trade. Down to the smallest detail, we constantly seek out ways to improve in our craft. Ask us how we can bring our personal service and industry-leading craftsmanship to your special project.

Authentic Wood Floors, Inc.

Authentic Wood Floors has been producing quality wood products since 1987. James Yelton, president of the company, was for many years in the restoration business. His job was to restore fine old buildings back to their original look. After searching and being unable to find good material, he began taking down old barns and houses, retrieving a product that would do justice to the integrity of the buildings on which he was working. Because of the quality of the product he was now using, other restoration professionals began searching him out to supply material for their projects. The lack of quality products in the marketplace spurred his desire to form a company that could secure and produce materials suitable for quality restorations. James personally follows all materials brought into the company, from start to finish, from the moment it enters his door, to when it reaches yours.

Have you been told that your property has a colorful history or might be architecturally important? If so, professional research can reveal that history, and document distinctive architectural features.

We will examine and photograph the historic structures within a property, paying particular attention to significant architectural or historic details.

Tremont Nail Company produces steel cut nails for authentic restoration projects & remodeling. The original Tremont Nail Company building was constructed by shipwrights in the early 1800's as a cotton mill. It was partially burned by the British in the War of 1812, then rebuilt and purchased by Isaac and Jared Pratt in 1819 to manufacture nails. The mill was partially destroyed by fire again in 1836. Reconstruction was completed in 1848 and the mill stands today as it did then, without any significant changes over the past 150 years. There are 60 nail machines in the mill, many over 125 years old, still cutting nails today the same way they did a century and one-half ago.
