Note ID: MS570
Weather Conditions: partly cloudy, low 80s
Report Author: Mary Harding Sadler
Report Date: 8/20/1999
Location: Mansion - Attic
Work Type: Miscellaneous
Notes: A wood balustrade defines the roof perimeter of the Mansion's original mass. The balustrade was restored to the roof about a decade ago. Many of the balusters had rotted because the threaded rods fastening them to the bottom rail had been installed without sealing the drilled interior cavities of the balusters. Water had wicked into the balusters causing rot. New balusters have been milled to replace the rotted members.

Note ID: MS569
Weather Conditions: partly cloudy, low 80s
Report Author: Mary Harding Sadler
Report Date: 8/20/1999
Location: Mansion - Second Floor - Library (E/R)
Work Type: Miscellaneous
Notes: The roofers (with James Ryland's roofing company) are installing a new flat-seam copper roof over the Library. A lead-coated copper was originally specified but it was realized that the seams of the recently installed lead-coated copper on the main roof (less than 10 years old) were already beginning to fail. The uncoated copper holds a better weld.

Report Author: Mary Harding Sadler
Report Date: 8/20/1999
Location: Mansion - South Elevation
Work Type: On-site paint removal
Notes: Paint removal continues on the South Portico. The quickest means of removal seems to be using a heat gun. The process is painstaking and laborious, particularly in the August heat.

Weather Conditions: partly cloudy, low 80s
Report Author: Mary Harding Sadler
Report Date: 8/20/1999
Location: Mansion - West Elevation
Work Type: On-site paint removal
Notes: Three sides of the Mansion remain shrouded in polyethylene sheeting while paint removal continues. The goal is to remove ALL paint from the patched stone trim at window sills, lintels, and string courses. Most of the top coats of yellow/cream colored paint will be removed from the brick walls. This is to ensure a durable paint finish with the best possible appearance.
