Progress on the farmhouse is nearing completion. The house has undergone an amazing transformation inside and out. From the outside you can see we’ve removed and properly abated the asbestos shingles to expose clapboards dating from the 1930′s, still in perfect condition.
The front and rear porches have been rebuilt and new energy efficient windows and doors have been fitted.
On the inside the house we’ve replaced the wiring and plumbing from the 1920′s. The heating system has been upgraded with an energy efficient on-demand hot water heater and baseboard heating throughout the house. Insulation has been installed (there was none) from top to bottom with cellulose in the attic and spray foam on the first floor.
All of this progress has been made possible by a volunteer from the community, Steve Buda. His assistance has been invaluable to us.
Funding for the house has been made possible through donations and memberships from our supporters. However we still need to raise more money to completely cover the cost of the renovations, which total nearly $100,000.
