Stone House Update

The Stone House is slated for roof replacement, front porch replacement, and exterior wall stabilization in 2014. The repair work has been solicited by the Stone House Committee, approved by the Board of Directors, and will be performed by Cochran Stone Masonry & Timberframing.

Cochran is on site starting on the reconstruction of the front porch.  The deconstruction includes removing of the large shrubs in front of the building as well as the concrete flooring, roofing, footers, and columns. Once final plans are approved by the county and weather conditions permit, Cochran will begin the building process for a new front porch.

After the porch is completed, the limestone mortar injections will be done.  This work cannot be done until the threat of freeze has subsided or the mortar can be protected from freezing.  The building will receive a new metal roof, as well as trim soffits, rake and fascia boards.  The upper walls and chimneys currently being stabilized by two interior gables will be reconstructed where they are currently failing, which is on the top floor.
