This is the story of a very special house that has seen a lot of changes since it was built in 1914. Our company, Dovetail Construction, has been in the business of high performance and sustainable renovation since 1987. The scope of the renovation is in fact “monumental” and it actually sits on the renowned Monument Avenue in Richmond, VA. The house was originally built for William Schwarzchild and designed by the architect D. Wiley Anderson. It went from being a single family residence to the home of the Senior Center of Richmond thanks to the hard work from the ladies of the Junior League of Richmond. As progress is made to take the house back to it’s original use as a single family home, we are fortifying it with the best resources, and technology available to make it last at least another 100 years.
