Cypress to Help Rejuvenate The Kuppersmith Project
The Southern Cypress Manufacturers Association is a proud sponsor of Danny Lipford’s The Kuppersmith Project. The renovation project is part of a 13-episode series on Today’s Homeowner with Danny Lipford to show homeowners how to create a modern, low-maintenance home that incorporates practical green principles, while addressing the top 50 challenges homeowners face.
The American Tudor style home, originally built in 1926, in Mobile, Ala., endured neglect over the years and has had little updating. Still, the home is rich in character and located in one of the city’s most popular areas.
The renovation project preserved the home’s basic structure, while adding improvements such as new cypress shakes, which replaced the home’s original cedar shakes. Cypress’s versatility also is on display as part of the fencing system, custom front door and shutters, as well as an indoor/outdoor porch ceiling.
