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.
