The Kamm House is one of Portland’s few remaining mansions from the 1870s. It is a true masterpiece of a building inside and out.
I felt very lucky to get a call from Bill Hawkins (architect and co-owner of the Kamm House) asking me to restore damaged veneered wood panels and antique cabinets in the house.
Because of the age of the wood, the quality of the workmanship and the complex designs, this is one of the most intimidating restoration jobs I’ve ever undertaken. Working on this house also reminds me that every detail matters in fine woodworking.
