Hand-Standing Lizard on the Top of the Heurich House?

While walking past the Heurich House in Dupont Circle, I noticed that it had a very strange figure on top of the turret. As far as I can tell it is a hand-standing lizard. Am I correct? And does anyone know the story behind this acrobatic iguana?

Architect recommendation?

I am interested in working with an architect to redesign the roof of my two-story, circa 1900 DC row house. I would like to add some skylights and relocate the HVAC system to the roof. Anybody have good experience and recommendations with local architects who take on smaller residential projects like this? I’m specifically looking for a firm that has experience with roof engineering, systems design (e.g., electrical and drainage for the HVAC), and construction oversight. Thanks.

Architectural embellishments for a ho-hum row house?

I live in a decidedly plain looking row house without any of the fancy brickwork or architectural flourishes that I really love about some of the older row houses in DC.

I’ve been wanting to figure out what kinds of things I could add to make it look just a little more fancy. Stuff like adding onlays above the dormer windows or those “teeth” that some houses have just under the roofline. Does Popville know of any people who do this kind of work? Or a resources where I could actually learn the names of all these little accents?
