Providence architecture

No two alike . . .

Many people are attracted to the individual character and handcrafted detail of our old East Side homes. Their charm, if even possible to reproduce, would be prohibitively expensive in today's economy and with today's tradesmen. A century or two ago, homebuilders had available the choicest locations to build on, building techniques and designs that had fully evolved, huge old-growth trees, inexpensive skilled craftsmen, and often very wealthy clients with discerning taste. It's no wonder that the fine homes they crafted are still with us and still so highly regarded.
