Structurally, the home is engineered for fire safety with sheets of steel decking, or floor plates, welded to the vertical steel framing. The similarity to methods of ship building earned the home the nickname the “Battledeck House”. The restoration focused on returning the exterior back to its original design finishes. All masonry was repaired, tuckpointed and painted in its original unifying color, deteriorated slate window hoods were replaced, original ornamental metals and exterior light fixtures were restored, and all flat roofing was replaced.
