TOUR BEGINS AT 9:00am
2016 REALTY PARTNER: GERRETSON REALTY, INC.
Join Columns & Coffee as we tour two houses designed by the accomplished historical architect Frederick J. Sterner. Both houses have been renovated by award-winning Denver architect Doug Walter AIA, who will be leading us through the challenges and successes of restoration, rehabilitation, remodeling, and additions to historic houses. Local general contractor Roger Simmermon will be on hand with Doug at the McPhee House to talk about things encountered along the way, and we will see process photos showing what’s behind the walls of a six-month effort to correct 108 years of deferred maintenance! Mike McPhee will share a few words about his great uncle, William Peter McPhee, the original owner of the house.
Doug Walter won a 2013 Newman Award for his design at the Moore House, deftly connecting the main block with the garage of this beautifully renovated 1908 home in the Denver Country Club neighborhood.
Locations: Meet for coffee & pastry at 8:30am at the McPhee House at East 7th Avenue & Lafayette Street, with the tour beginning at 9:00am. The second tour will be at the Moore House at 301 Humboldt Street only a few blocks south. Please be respectful of the neighbors when parking at both locations.
Cost: $10 General. No cost to ICAA Members.
