About Us

Nineteenth Century Restorations is owned and operated by Dan Riedemann, a 5th generation carpenter who learned specialty restoration methods and techniques working with his grandfather since childhood, and through multiple apprenticeships. Through his extensive experience in custom carpentry, historic masonry repairs, and all aspects of preservation, Dan learned to appreciate and reflect in his work the quality and style of 19th century techniques, but with modern amenities. Completed projects include room additions and full remodels of homes in West Plaza, Old Leawood, Hyde Park, Kansas City Mo. and Johnson County, Kansas. He since relocated to Lawrence to raise a family and to focus on historic preservation and custom home building.

Today, Nineteenth Century Restorations works Nationwide to preserve and restore homes to the beauty and charm of the past for future generations. Dan uses a hands on approach, working onsite, staying intimately involved in every project from start to finish. In a day where builders often work from the office and rarely step foot on the job site, Dan takes pride in his hands on involvement which includes ensuring the highest standards are met during each step of your project. Honoring the tradition of hard work, skill and pride of earlier generations who passed on their knowledge, we focus on building with craftsmanship and integrity of the past while integrating technologies of today. These practices have earned Dan an opportunity for a Cable Television Reality Show which is to start filming in Okemah Oklahoma late summer of 2012 to be aired in the fall of 2013 beginning with the re-construction of Woody Guthries childhood home, followed by two more historically significant homes, to round out season one.
