Building a replica of Thomas Jeffersons’ retreat, Poplar Forest, (which was designed after Monticello) was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Attention was paid to detail throughout the entire home to closely match the original structure. Old-style bricks were ordered from the east coast for the exterior and windows match the original. 12-ft ceilings, the interior colors, and even the furniture create the atmosphere of old. It was a real treat to be able to create history again!
