Historically Accurate Wooden Windows
The windows on many historic buildings are an important aspect of the architectural character of those buildings. The window design, craftsmanship, and aesthetic quality make them worthy of preservation. Cape Charles town wide effort to keep that ‘charm’ and historic authenticity may seem like an inconvenience, but it does elevate the real estate value and create a harmony among the buildings. If you are frustrated by the design, approval or historic wood building standards start a discussion with Matthew or one of our staff at Gepetto to get a tradesman on site to move your home’s needed repairs forward. Gepetto’s skilled historic restoration craftsmen don’t normally do house calls, but if a local tradesman does not know where to turn to source authentic materials – come to Gepetto on Williamsburg Road downtown Richmond.

Work Scope: Restoration projects primarily focus on the appearance of the house or technical business, while remodels change its whole functionality. With the renovation, you will install new appliances and fixtures and improve the business’s application. In contrast, the remodel allows you to totally change the place when cosmetic changes aren’t enough to change this matter. Customization choice: Renovations will make the business a more fashionable show and bring more useful components to the business, but they can’t change the system entirely. If you need to move up the way by pulling down the wall or totally change the place to make it your own, you’ll need to do a full remodel.
Before you start any remodeling house tasks check with the local authorities to determine the permits needed for this job. Most government and local town halls need licenses to confirm all the work is done according to Cape Charles codes and ordinances. All the required licenses must be recieved before starting construction. Gepetto can refer local contractors and architects who are familiar with the process and can negotiate it with you if it’s your first time.

Arriving at the entrance to the Chesapeake Bay in late April, they named the Virginia capes after the sons of their king, the southern Cape Henry, for Henry Frederick, Prince of Wales, and the northern Cape Charles, for his younger brother, Charles, Duke of York. On April 26, 1607, upon landing at Cape Henry, Chaplain Robert Hunt offered a prayer, and they set up a cross near the site of the current Cape Henry Memorial.
The site came to be known as the “first landing.” A party of the men explored the area and had a minor conflict with some Virginia Indians. This is where we come in. Our team of experts can help you get started on the right path instead of starting historic battles with the native population. Hopefully that’s now how you feel about the zoning and historic boards, so we can build out the exterior or interior of your home beautifully.
