With respect for the integrity of the historic property, it has been brought up to today's standards in design, style and comfort. A complete summary of the rehabilitation of the Exterior and Interior are included in the Document Section of Bright. Included in the summary are the Structural Reinforcements including the exterior brick walls and chimney being reinforced with mortar applied between the exterior and interior brick walls, the reinforcement of the structural framing of the staircase to accommodate a new open stairwell, the demolition of the main floor down to the structural framing to then build a new utility and laundry room, half bath, dining and open kitchen and family rooms and the demolition of the upper two floors to include the creation of an alcove in the living room, custom-built walk-in closets, as well as French doors to create rear walls at all three levels.
