The house was also given all new wiring, heating and cooling systems, European limestone in new kitchen and baths, and new lighting, sound and security systems. In order to retain the historic character of the house, all new moldings were milled to match the original profiles, all internal doors were replaced with new solid-wood doors and Baldwin hardware, new cedar shutters were added, the front-door was replaced with period-appropriate walnut doors, new crown moldings were added throughout, new basement window guards were cast, and numerous other details were restored or accurately replaced.
