ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - "This really upsets me," said Pat Rossignol.
Rossignol can't believe the home she and her husband worked so hard to restore is showing such disturbing signs of damage.
"I mean, I'm sad," she said.
The Rossignol's believe the vibrations and pounding from pile-driving equipment at a nearby bridge replacement project on Park St. caused the cracks to appear.
"The windows are shaking, the chandelier is shaking and it's damaging this home," Rossignol explained.
The house, designed by Addison Mizner, was built in 1931 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Rossignol said the home was restored to over a 15-year period beginning in 1997.
"We have cracks in the ring-beam that's holding the glass and we never had this before. I mean, we never had any cracks," Rossignol pointed out.
Cracks are on nearly every second floor pillar in the home's grand rotunda. Vintage black Carrera glass in the master bedroom has cracks; as well as several other rooms where cracks are more noticeable.
Wood floors have also been affected Rossignol claims.
"Look, the step has actually dropped. It's dropped about a half an inch," she showed.
According to the Rossignol's, it's going to take more than just some minor repairs to bring the house back to its condition that it was in before the construction started."
"These are things that are not replaceable and they are cracking," Pat Rossignol said.
Penny for Pinellas is paying for the project that's less than 200 feet from the historic home. The Rossignol's have hired an attorney and are considering a lawsuit.
Citing pending litigation, Pinellas County chose not to comment on the homeowners' concerns.
ABC Action News reached out to the contractor on the project, Cone & Graham Inc., but they did not return our phone calls seeking comment.
