When the last of the children flew the coup from this century-old home, it was time to turn the family-friendly abode into a refined escape that would rival even the best of the Big Easy. Jonathan Bailey, builder for HGH Construction, LLC, worked hand in hand with Shelley and Caldwell Huckabay to make sure the project was executed with style while still staying true to the home’s original character.
“I think we all came into this project with an intention that we were going to be very respectful of this house,” says Bailey. “Sometimes when people renovate a home, the first thing they do is blow it up and blow it out, and that would have been the wrong approach to this house.”
