Progress Update on Home Renovation in Darien, Connecticut

Knollwood Lane Darien CT home renovation


Titus Built is busy with several home renovations in lower Fairifeld County, Connecticut. Some are at the beginning stage while others are nearly complete. The Harbor View waterfront renovation is scheduled to be finished by next Friday. Our clients are getting married and plan to have their rehearsal dinner/birthday party combo at their home on Friday evening.  We wish Tamara & Steve a beautiful lifetime of togetherness and happiness. Photos of the home’s detail custom millwork will be posted soon.

Below is a progress update of the Darien home renovation. The renovation began this spring with the testing for lead paint. As this home was built in 1963, the United State Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires all homes built before 1978 to be tested for lead paint. We were pleased to find out that there was no lead paint found. To learn more about the lead paint rule you can read the EPA’s pamphlet The Lead-Safe Certified Guild to Renovate Right.



Demolition is complete:

  • Titus Built tested for lead paint (in houses built prior to 1978) per EPA regulations.
  • Demolition completed to prepare for construction as per plan.
  • All demolition material was placed in dumpsters provided by Titus Built and removed from site.
