  1. Hello Everyone! I am new to the forums. My house is a Hofco Southern Dynasty. Circa 1988. I have recently started restoring it. It would be great if I could find a copy of a Southern Dynasty Deed, I just want to see what one looks like, I was a child when Santa brought my house so I have no recollection of the deed or knowledge where it could possibly be. My little sister had a Hofco Federal. I would be interested in seeing pictures of those as well! I will upload a few pictures soon. Thanks, Angela

    The topiaries had brown bases when they arrived which didn't match very well. I reps intend them black then added some white for a distressed look. I love that the bases are square, they seem to match the lines of the house.

  10. Haint blue porch ceiling

    From the album Southern Dynasty Restoration

    It looks a little more aqua in person. After I read the history behind the blue porch ceilings of the south I had to choose this color!

    Painted the porch floors grey today (thanks for the ideas havanaholly) and put a third coat of black paint on the shutters. I realize things don't appear to be straight but everything is just resting temporarily, windows doors and shutters are not permanently affixed yet.
  12. Front view update

    From the album Southern Dynasty Restoration

    Still need to add the extra moulding around the French doors. But, this sure looks a lot better than a few weeks ago. Painting the shutters black now. Also need to add "glass" into windows and door along with brass door handles.

    Using the suggestion of a friend and fellow enthusiast, I used a hair dryer and some gentle prying to deprecate the pieces of the old frame. Going to glue the to the new frame to have almost an exact replica and more accurate version of the original.
  14. New unfinished French door
