Leslie Savage (beside Laura) and her husband David (not present) won the Residential Detail Award for their use of new paint and wood detailing in a heritage style to give new life to their home at 111 Fifth Street East. Rachel Kenward (second from the right accepted the Residential Renovation Award on behalf of Paul and Eileen Sutherland for their application of Hardi plank siding and shingles, a new roof, new windows and new paint to the Down’s House at 917 Second Street West. And, finally, Christ Johnston won Residential Renovation Award for his treatment of the old Sturdy House at 102 Third Street East. He removed a stucco exterior, reconditioned the original wood siding and applied new paint that brought out the structure’s original details. David F. Rooney photo
