Home of the Week: Maykus Residence

A renovation of the 1904 home of one of Grapevine, Texas’ first mayors sought to preserve the house’s architectural significance while improving its performance.

Bricks from the home’s piers were removed, cleaned and then reused for brick sidewalks by the entry.

A gable and dormer with cedar-shake siding with curved details, diamond-styled inserts, and original wood casement windows were refurbished.

Replicas were produced of features that could not be restored, such as column capitals and handrails.

Several improvements were added for high-performance energy efficiency and modernization, including a total, encapsulated, foam insulation system, tankless water heaters, new electric wiring, a Lennox HVAC system and Pella aluminum-clad wood windows.
