In the mid-1940s, not long after World War II ended, a woman moved into the Munger Place home at 710 Dumas Street. Her two sisters lived on the same block. She would remain there seven decades until leaving for an assisted living facility last year.
When she moved out, the 1921-built home still had many of its original elements, including double-hung windows with wavy glass, and beveled glass exterior and interior doors. It was also in need of significant repairs, making it an ideal project for Steel Toe Stiletto, the general contracting company owned by Tam Pham.
“Tam is a true custom builder,” Allie Beth Allman & Associates’ Gia Marshello said. “What makes her unique is that she goes into these dilapidated properties and makes them gorgeous.”
