This historic building had undergone a fire several years ago. To protect the building, the owner had covered the face with metal siding which did not fit the ambiance of the surrounding buildings. When strong winds tore off some of the siding, and the owner went for permits, the city convinced the owner it was best to bring the look of the building in line with the neighborhood.
This is where Kyle Zepernick with the Oregon Group got involved. His ideas met the design criteria of the Oregon District and brought the project forward. Following are before and after pictures - with some of the detail involved.

The Dayton Bureau for Lath and Plaster is funded by contractors through the Dayton area Plasterer’s Union. It seeks to promote quality work through the use of trained craftsmen. If you have project details or specifications, Ken Oren is available for questions. There is no charge to architects when the project in question is offered to local bidders. The Bureau has purchased ASTM Section C and AutoCAD LT for reference and convenience in addressing design issues.
