In late 2019, Doug Wolffe and Matt Golas shored up the Mary Henry cabin. We are happy to report that after the structure was stabilized under the entrance, all other engineering aspects passed muster. Broken windows were also replaced and parts of the siding that have insect damage will be replaced in 2020.
In the Fall of 2019, Highline Construction replaced the failing siding and main door material on the barn. The firm also shored up the structural support on west facing side of the barn and rehabbed that concrete aspects of the barn floor.
Also in the Fall of 2019, John B. Ward and Co. removed two dangerous trees over the driveway, a 100-year-old Hickory and a 60-year-old Cherry. The foundation thanks the Wards for their generous work.
In the Winter of 2019, Mack Oil Co. put a new, energy efficient heating system in the cottage that is attached to the barn.
In conjunction with the greenhouse renovation, Doug and Matt are also rehabbing the patio porch supports and gable on the east facing side of the house.
Lastly, the iconic Mary Henry Jeep is now back in service thanks to the repair skills of Billy Wolffe.
