A solid foundation
|Durable materials ensure traditional architecture survives for generations|
Jeri and David Kelly's Stanford Avenue home is thoroughly modern, but inspired by a bygone era. Here are some of the durable, state-of-the-art materials the home contains:
* The poured concrete columns were formed in a mold that was built using a capital to a column that Jeri Kelly bought on Magazine Street. Concrete columns will never weather or rot.
* The cornice is made of concrete that will never rot and placed by a Romanian-trained plasterer.
* The home's exterior uses Azeck, a composite material that doesn't rot, expand or contract and can be cleaned using a power washer.
* The edges of the porch are brick, which will not rot.
* The porch is made of pressure-treated flooring that is not edible by termites.
