Wood trim and ornament are character-defining features that help identify its style.


Retain original trim when possible, and replace in kind to match original when necessary. Composite

materials when used in custom design might be considered on a case by case basis. Medium-density

fiberboard (MDF) is an approved material for the construction of architectural panels.




When proposing an addition or new construction, pay attention to neighboring historic structures and

period styles to determine the appropriate application, scale, and proportions of trim.
