The Samuel Noakes House, Part 21

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, and part 20.

In today’s installation of the Noakes house project, you can see a number of salvaged items being reinstalled in the building. As you may recall, a number of original doors were removed during the early stages of the project and tucked away for future use. They have now been reinstalled. In cases where there were not quite enough matching doors on hand, historic replacements were purchased from Maggie’s Farm architectural salvage in Front Royal. Note in the upstairs bedroom on the Braddock St. side that the closet doors have been reversed to expose the unpainted sides to the room. Several double swinging doors have been re-purposed as single closet doors. A few brand new doors have also been installed along with the historic ones — see if you can spot them!
