Day Building, Portland

This 1904 apartment building in Portland is on the National Historic Register. It was damaged by fire, including the plaster capitals on the three story classical columns. Wood windows and doors were replaced with matching wood windows, using the existing windows as templates. The plaster capitals were recreated in modern plaster using pieces from undamaged portions of the capitals to help create the molds. The original wood floors were discovered undamaged under the carpets and refinished.  Where modifications had happened in the past, they were replaced with work that more closely matched the original building.
