Edmond Fernandez helped me with the restoration of my 1865 home in Lincoln Park. Over a period of six months or so, he totally reconstructed my large dining room and living room. Both had been misused and abused by the people who owned the house prior to its purchase by my husband's family in 1959. In the dining room, he reconstructed walls and ceiling and removed an extraneous closet that had been bumped into the room.
He took considerable time and painstaking effort to repair the damaged plaster crown molding, replacing what was missing or unrepairable with perfectly matched foam. He also hung the wallpaper in this room, straightened the large arch between living room and dining room and installed salvaged curved corner molding in the archway. Edmond also restored and redecorated a small study downstairs, installing much-needed closet and storage space, and did the same for my master bedroom. A year before all of this, he restored the walls, floor and ceiling in my kitchen, installing insulation where it had never been.
Edmond has also been very helpful in finding plumbers, electricians and other workmen as needed.
Edmond was always on time and spent long hours on these projects...on one occasion I got up at 5 a.m. and found him downstairs still painting! All of his work is very high quality. He is also as neat as it is possible to be, keeping disruption and mess to a minimum. His attention to detail is superb...he is a true craftsman and I can't recommend him highly enough!
