The S. Solomon Street project includes renovations to a raised basement home in the MId-City neighborhood including buildout of the basement for a two bedroom rental unit. The upstairs, owner-occupied unit was modified to create a private master suite, add an additional full bathroom, and enlarge the kitchen and living areas by enclosing some existing covered porches. The main unit also has a private stair to the rear of the ground floor with an attached mother-in-law suite. The design and renovation is being completed with grant funding through the Louisiana Division of Historic Preservation (SHPO) with detail taken to preserve the original elements, both interior and exterior. Where the interior floor plan was changed, the original trim, casework and materials were salvaged for reinstallation and references to the original, historic layout were maintained.
