Project Info

Cottage on the Vineyard

I was contacted by a Interior design Firm to provide early plumbing fixtures and the technical support for rough plumbing. I was further needed to install all of the purchased plumbing. They wanted real period faucets and all associated hardware. Some of the items are extremely rare. I used Meyer Sniffen glass leg sinks complete with the same company medicine cabinets traps and shutoffs. Many fixtures were JL Mott. Earthenware bathtubs, Pedestal sinks in pairs. Center spout faucets in all but 1sink. Then I found towel bars shelf brackets & toilet paper holders. I work with the architects to keep the project moving through many changes. I worked with the inspectors to make old plumbing satisfy code requirements. I have specialized in antique Plumbing for over 18 years and can past all of the obstacles people invent to stop you from achieving your dreams.
