It's Showtime, for a film being shot in this old house.


A remake of Steel Magnolias is being shot in this 100 yr old Neil Reid house, our famous architect.
I want to be in the credits somewhere so this is it.
We've gotten to restore this house top to bottom, inside out.
The made for TV film stars Queen Latifa.
These shutters were dipped and stripped to be operational. The windows were totally reglazed.
The old sleeping porch (b4 AC) is now a sunroom.
Side view. My, what a nice van that is.
A hole in the floor was filled with plywood and I faux finished it to match the surrounding brick. The old brick is on the right and the faux painted brick left.

Have a question about this project?

    That's right Andy, by Fernbank, at Clifton and Ponce. Sally, if memory serves from looking at a book on the house, the original drive came in straight. How astute of you. The house has been added onto the back over the years enlarging the kitchen, and the second story 'sleeping porch' on the left, closed in.
