If you have an old house, chances are most of your home’s integrity is lost through years of improper old house renovation. If you have a new house, it most likely lacks the character that comes with traditional architecture. Open the door to The Old House Guy, and we’ll help you understand the ins and outs of your old or historic home.
If you’re a contractor, we can help you to help your customer too!
Fixing Up an Old House Requires Expertise
Sure, you can talk to local experts, read books, and use tools like the Internet to find information on just about any repair. But what you really need for your old home renovation or historic home restoration is a professional to help guide you through a solid plan—and save you money, too!
We understand that times are tough and you want your home to look its best. For a fraction of the cost required by an architect, we will perform an old home renovation or makeover creating custom designs for you that any builder, remodeler, or landscape installer can follow. How can we offer our services at such affordable prices?
For starters, we make no onsite visits; instead, all work is performed on photos by email. Just send us a photo of your home and let us show you how we can bring back the original beauty of your old house, or add character to your new house and improve curb appeal.
Once you see the transformation of your home, improvements can be implemented in phases. The final result is your goal and you can accomplish your transformation on own time-frame and budget.
Innovative Old House Renovation and Historic Home Restoration
You won’t find any other old house restoration businesses like this. That’s because unlike the others, we don’t use colored pencils or photocopies or sketches. We produce realistic images that you understand in Photoshop, scaled in AutoCAD (an architectural drafting program) to match your house.
See and understand your home’s full potential and how to get the best possible curb appeal. Afraid to start a project because you’re not sure you will like it?
See the finished project and know exactly what to expect – it’s like seeing into the future. Have something to show your contractor what you want and make sure what you see is what you get.

The Old House Guy will help you determine:
- What would your house look like with real shutters, a period porch, the correct windows, new wood siding, new paint colors, landscaping, etc?
- Do you need a full house makeover? Let us design something for you.
- Building a new house? We can review, correct, and modify your elevations for your builder to follow.
- Need an addition? Additions for historic home renovation must be sensitive and compatible.
- How to easily get approval for your project from the Preservation Commission with a photo or diagram of your project.
And remember, a picture of your historic home renovation is worth a thousand words. It will save you from disappointment and extra expenses.
How Much Does All This Cost?
Well that really depends on the amount of work needed and the time involved. A house only needing shutters can cost as low as $75 while some makeovers can average in the $400-700 range.
