The Mississippi Duplex is a converted 1910 foursquare craftsman home. Owen Gabbert, LLC handled all steps of the project, including acquisition, financing, design, and construction. The project included a full rehab of each unit and the exterior of the house. Part restoration and part modernization, we removed asbestos siding at the exterior of the house to reveal the original cedar lap siding and installed a historically accurate drip cap at the belly band as well as lintels at the window and door casing. In the upper unit, a pair of fir French doors open on to a new Ipe deck with a custom 2x2 cedar railing, added to provide quality outdoor space. On the inside, both kitchens were demolished, redesigned with open floor plans, and completely rebuilt. Existing and reclaimed fir is featured prominently throughout the building, including a custom bar built from studs reclaimed from removed interior walls and the original refinished floors.
