The year 2001 was filled with demolition and construction as the Church Street House was restored to a middle class residence of the 20's and 30's. Layers of "improvements" were cleared away to reveal the tight grained, old growth Douglas-fir that H. L. Mountjoy had used for the interior woodwork eighty five years previously. Two guest rooms with private baths were created, each filled with art and family photos from Texas, whence they came to Sandpoint, and Alaska, to where they departed.
