As a developer and contractor, Gerry was not scared away from this falling down, 1880’s Victorian in San Francisco's Castro neighborhood. With only the facade salvageable, the interior was completely created in period style with contemporary planning, yet with scale, proportion and trim detailing as if it all were original. Period lighting, inlay wood flooring and marble and limestone in the bathrooms complete the imagery. This small, one-story house that sat high on the hill, was held in the air as a new garage and small apartment were built below, and a second- story master bedroom suite and outdoor deck were added behind the tall parapet of the front facade.
