The Reverend Stephen Jewett House, on Wooster Place in New Haven, was originally built in 1833 for the merchant Theron Towner, who then sold it to Rev. Jewett, an Episcopal minister. The house was designed and constructed by the builder James English, who later became a successful manufacturer and politician. After the Civil War, when the Second Empire style became fashionable, the house was updated with a Mansard roof and a new porch.

    We were pleased to have worked on this fine home. This was one of our more challenging jobs of the year, endless detail was required for a true historic restoration. Wood accents were deteriorated and we had a master woodworker recreate the decorative wood accents around the Yankee gutter system. We added detail that you can only appreciate by taking a closer look. To see a before and after picture please visit this link. http://tararoofingsystems.com/pictures/before-after-pics/
