Having personally worked on three of her own early home restorations--a c.1790 Colonial Saltbox, a c.1860 Greek Revival Center Hall Colonial, and a c.1753 Stone Bankhouse with French Huguenot-style influence which that my husband & I saved from demolition & are currently restoring and has recently earned its Letter of Eligibility for the State and National Register of Historic Places due to its "extreme rarity of form and style" from the NJ State Historic Preservation Office-- makes her invaluable when looking at "project houses" or finished projects.
