Report Author: Mary Harding Sadler
Report Date: 4/26/1999
Location: Mansion - Basement - Coat Room (E) / Reception (R)
Work Type: Demolition
Notes: When the ceiling is removed a small opening is revealed. The opening is not visible in the Entry Hall above; it was patched with parquet flooring. It appears that the opening was once a vent which allowed heat to rise into the Entry Hall from this area, formerly a furnace room.

Weather Conditions: sunny, low 70's
Report Author: Mary Harding Sadler
Report Date: 4/26/1999
Location: Mansion - Basement - Mansion Director (E/R)
Work Type: Demolition
Notes: In Mansion Director's Office we observed the newly-stripped door opening on the north wall (door casing and frame were removed in the current demolition effort). Evidence seems to indicate a historic window-sized opening enlarged to create the existing doorway. Painted brick jambs extended only from the ceiling to about 4' above the finish floor. Brick from the floor to 4' above the finish floor was rough, apparently because it had been cut and patched to create the larger opening.

Weather Conditions: sunny, low 70's
Report Author: Mary Harding Sadler
Report Date: 4/26/1999
Location: Mansion - First Floor - Dining Room (E/R)
Work Type: Floor Conservation
Notes: Damaged flooring is being removed from Dining Room. This flooring is considerably (about 1/2") thicker than the Stair Hall, Ladies Parlor, and Old Governor's Office flooring. The Dining Room floors are laid in a simple basket weave pattern, where the other parquetry is herringbone. Structural problems in the Dining Room include settlement on either side of a north-south "ridge" defined by a wall in the kitchen below. The problem, evidenced by a continuous crack between squares of parquetry, has been brough to the attention of the Architect.

Report Author: Mary Harding Sadler
Report Date: 4/26/1999
Location: Mansion - First Floor - Stair Hall (E/R)
Work Type: Floor Conservation
Notes: Observed removal of flooring in south Stairhall. Herringbone flooring can be removed by pivoting the individual boards, using a small pry bar. This flooring is relatively thin, particularly from the tongue to the finish surface. The shape of the flooring pieces doesn't match the pieces to be replaced. The conservator's work is more challenging than anticipated.
