Charlie Angell, Savannah’s House Doctor, is an award-winning general contractor, specializing in creating comfort and luxury in the smaller spaces of a Historic Savannah home.

Savannah is known for its architecture and boasts excellent examples from every American century. The fact, however, is that people in this century live a little differently than our forbears. Our kitchens, for one thing, are more often the center of homelife. Our baths are far more luxurious. If you are looking for a general and restoration contractor who understands how to make centuries-old homes work for people of today, look no further.

Time to Call the House Doctor
Buying a home in Savannah’s historic district comes with certain responsibilities, including the task of maintaining the exterior to exacting historic standards. When considering a remodel, Savannah’s downtown residents are subject to the Historic District Board of Review. It is therefore essential to hire a contractor like The House Doctor, with both the know-how and the experience to get the job done right.

Living with History
Inside an historic home, there are many details that require that same expert attention, but there are also opportunities for creativity in making a house a home.

On Harris Street, Charlie Angell and his team oversaw a complete restoration that will keep the Klement house snug for many years to come. The project included structural stabilization of the premises, including new roof systems and masonry repair. The electrical, plumbing, and HVAC systems had to be completely redone. And, as always, the gorgeous artisinal details of the home required special attention. Charlie Angell installed custom millwork and metalwork and historically-appropriate tilework. The House Doctor’s team of craftsmen included carpenters, millworkers, and painters, each of whom contributed their part in making sure that the newly-remodeled kitchen and baths were in harmony with the historic details of the house.
