Labor of love has gone into the salvaging & restoration of these original redwood architectural ornaments.
On a clear day, we are getting the “foundation” for the Mansard roof all prep’d.
Finally have a paint match to the original stone color of the building. All the wood window trims and restored windows will receive this paint color (as shown on paint on wooden panel below). The original & historic Francis House had the same color wooden trims and ornaments that matched the exterior stone.
I know… I know… it looks like nothing much is happening but next week of good weather means full throttle on getting the trusses and wood sheathing in place. We target a roof up by April Fools Day (and that’s no April Fool’s prank !)
The I-beams for the new front balconies were installed yesterday. See the 2 horizontal red beams under the second floor windows ?
