Repair to the front of the house

    Newer Older

    Earlier this year, we discovered there was some extensive rot to the soffit on the front of the house. We've been having that repaired. There is a little rot on the other side, but it's not nearly as bad.

    To the right of the guy you'll see a bracket. There is actually a second bracket that was so rotted we couldn;t use it. The moldings were also too damaged to reuse so all of these things had to be made from scratch. One major problem with owning an old house is dealing with these beautiful details when they get damaged.

    For the moldings, we wound up having blades made and having them milled. For the bracket, Bill rebuilt it (see photos below).
