Moyer Homestead home restoration, Berks County, PA

The house in which this magnificent fireplace and paint-decorated paneling are now restored stood empty for many years. During those dormant years, salvage thieves broke in and ripped the fireplace surround and many other valuable items from their place. Dogged determination on the part of the then-owner tracked down the fireplace surround – albeit in hundreds of pieces – and dogged determination on the part of our restoration carpenters reconstructed it. Many hours of meticulous paint scraping revealed the original colors and faux graining which were then recreated.
