Siding Restoration Pictures
As shown in the pictures to the right, the exterior siding was in neeed of replacement. The original 1868 siding had held up well but rot & the inability to old paint meant replacement
As shown below, all original siding was removed, the beam structure reinforced, spray insulation was added (none in original structure, and new siding added and painted. The spray in insulation also increased the structural strength which allowed the removal of support rods.
The basement access doors were replaced with modern waterproof metal doors.
