This is an impressive building in Launceston requiring repairs to the two-storied verandas and replacement of various inappropriate fixtures and fittings, internally and externally.
The owner required Authentic Age to appraise the originality of existing structures, fittings and decorative features; advise on preservation and rectification sympathetic to the original; and advise on typical colour schemes.
We provided a written report containing a detailed appraisal of the property, options for work to be done and recommended suppliers.
The client was thus able to confidently brief the builder as to what was required to meet her wish to retain the house’s significant heritage value.
