Historic Restoration of the Barn’s Exterior
The Barn’s original split cedar shingles are nearly a century old and are showing age. Especially affected are the shingles on the south-facing and courtyard walls where the sun and weather have done the most damage and where replacement is most urgent. Replacing those shingles is Phase I of the restoration project.
Grants from the Thomas J. Emery Memorial Foundation and the Helen G., Henry F. & Louise Tuechter Dornette Foundation, personal donations, and the Give a Shingle campaign have made completion of Phase 1 possible.
Painting the new shingles is on the calendar for this spring.
Many thanks to all of you who have helped us preserve this beautiful place where art happens.
