The Samuel Noakes House, Part 23

The Samuel Noakes HouseWe continue our journey through the renovation process at the Samuel Noakes House at 101 West Cork Street/201 South Braddock Street. Updates are posted each Tuesday through the PHW blog, following the progress with virtual hardhat tours. The previous entries may be found at the PHW blog at part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5, part 6, part 7, part 8, part 9, part 10, part 11, part 12, part 13, part 14, part 15, part 16, part 17, part 18, part 19, part 20, part 21, and part 22.

For those who attended the reception on March 9, you know the Noakes house is almost complete now. The apartments are complete, and the barber shop area is nearly ready for a new tenant to direct the final build out. We will back up slightly before the party and show some of the last touches going into the house, namely built-ins and cabinets through the house. Don’t miss some photos from the party as well!

We’ve had a great time following the process at the Noakes house. We hope that you’ve been inspired by what was accomplished here to tackle an older building in need of some TLC, or just get some ideas to maintain the one you already own. Historic buildings and modern amenities are not always mutually exclusive concepts.
