This current project includes rebuilding shutters, window sills and the side porch decking, as well as replacing columns, soffits, fascia and crown moulding where years of rough upstate New York winters have taken their toll. The property’s carriage house is also having some dormer roof repairs. Check back for updated photos of the completed project.
