Charles Carroll House of Annapolis | North Porch Restoration
Lewis Contractors completed restoration work at the Charles Carroll House in Annapolis, Maryland. Lewis’ work on this historic property involved a portico addition which involved the detailed replication of the home’s original north portico—a feature that was constructed by Charles Carroll himself in the 1700s and later removed in the 1850s. As part of the project team, Lewis’ goal on this project was to recreate the portico in an exact replica of the original, thereby restoring the north façade to its intended design. The new entrance includes a new brick walkway and stairs leading to the porch constructed of limestone columns supporting a gabled roof. To make the new portico historically accurate—and in accordance with MHTs design requirements—work involved extensive brick and mortar color matching as well as expert math and finish carpentry skills to complete the installation of the porch mouldings.
