Note ID: MS408
Weather Conditions: Scattered clouds, mid-70s
Report Author: Mary Harding Sadler
Report Date: 7/19/1999
Location: Mansion - West Elevation
Work Type: Excavation
Notes: A tunnel under the west portico must be excavated to run drain lines. Typical of all of the fill we've seen in the basement and at the perimeter of the Mansion, the fill under the West Portico is clay mixed with rounded river rock. The entire area along the west side must be excavated and new drain lines installed below the level of the new basement floor. Workers say that no artifacts have been unearthed in this effort.

Weather Conditions: Cloudy, low 90s
Report Author: Joseph D. Lahendro
Report Date: 7/21/1999
Location: Mansion - First Floor - Old Governor's Office (E/R)
Work Type: Demolition
Notes: Video and digital photos of east wall, north of fireplace, where recent cornice, installed with gypsum board finish to cover existing door, has been partially removed exposing historic cornice below. Only the wall moldings of the historic cornice were covered by newer cornice, the historic ceiling moldings were still exposed but the soffit was narrowed because of the furred out wall moldings. There appears to have been some damage done to the historic cornice by installation of the recent cornice.

Note ID: JL196
Weather Conditions: Cloudy, low 90s
Report Author: Joseph D. Lahendro
Report Date: 7/21/1999
Location: Mansion - Second Floor - East Bedroom (E) / First Lady's Dressing and Bathroom (R)
Work Type: Demolition
Notes: Video and digital photos of original window in west wall (inside face of rear, east wall of original wall) the interior trim and sash of which are being removed by laborers. The interior jamb boards, head board, sill and bottom sash appear to be early 20th century from their wire nails and circular saw marks. Sash weights and connecting chain are also early 20th century (at first the sash weights appeared earlier with their crude form and roman numeral labels, but they exactly match the early 20th century basement kitchen window sash weights). The sash boxes, exterior frame and upper sash appear to be historic, possibly original due to early cut nails with T-heads. Top sash has pegged, open tongue and groove corner joints with muntins tenoned through the rails and stiles. Top sash also does not have a molding profile along the top of the check rail. Both sash will be paint stripped and reused. The exterior frame and sash weight boxes will be left in place and covered by new finishes.
