Note ID: JL167
Weather Conditions: Raining, mid 70s
Report Author: Joseph D. Lahendro
Report Date: 7/12/1999
Location: Mansion - First Floor - Breakfast Room (E/R)
Work Type: Demolition
Notes: Video and digital photos of north wall where baseboard has been removed to show brick wall beneath that formerly was the south exterior wall for the 1906 dining room addition. East of the door there is a stucco belt course that continues the original house's stone belt course. At the east and south walls in this room the baseboard has also been removed to expose a black coating on the brick walls beneath. This coating is the same as previously documented on brick walls in this area in the basement below. It appears to be an asphaltic damproofing coating.

Note ID: JL166
Weather Conditions: Raining, mid 70s
Report Author: Joseph D. Lahendro
Report Date: 7/12/1999
Location: Mansion - First Floor - North Foyer (E/R)
Work Type: Demolition
Notes: Video and digital photos of west wall, south of door where plaster has been removed exposing brick wall face. Brick face is painted, beneath the plaster, from the floor to an angled top line that starts at 6'-6" AFF at the south corner and angles upward to the door's south jamb. This painted brick finish appears to be an historic wall finish beneath a stair run along the west wall that led to a landing against the north wall. This is further supported by evidence that the foyer's south partition appears to be early 20th century from the wire nails, circular sawn framing and gypsum baseboard. The possible location of a former stair in this location calls into question the west door which is cut across its top by the stair, although the door could still be here if the swing was into the governor's office.

Note ID: JL168
Weather Conditions: Raining, mid 70s
Report Author: Joseph D. Lahendro
Report Date: 7/12/1999
Location: Mansion - Second Floor - Lafayette Room (E/R)
Work Type: Demolition
Notes: Video and digital photos of the shallow closet on the east wall, south of the fireplace, where the flooring has been removed for a new fireplace gas line. From the remnants of flooring that remain the flooring was tongue and groove heart pine and appears to have been original. This opening is now a shallow closet because of the stair run on the west side of the opening. It is possible that this opening was historically a door when the stair was against the north exterior wall (see note above).

Note ID: JL173
Weather Conditions: Cloudy, mid 70s
Report Author: Joseph D. Lahendro
Report Date: 7/13/1999
Location: Mansion - Second Floor - Bedroom and Bathroom #2 (R)
Work Type: Demolition
Notes: Video and digital photos of existing east door on south brick wall (which will be covered over in new work) where the door frame has been removed exposing the brick below. The east and west jambs are undamaged formed ends except for the bottom 2'-9" sections of both jambs where the brick are broken to form the jambs. It appears this existing door opening was a window in this former south exterior wall, and was extended to a door when the corner study was added.
