Week 8

The new landscaping of the grounds is nearly complete. Grass seed has been planted and straw mulch is covering the seeds and earth. Six new trees have been planted, five on the lawn. One is next to the terrace, replacing the old burr oak that went down in a storm a few years ago.

We will also have some new exterior lighting installed, uplighting the house at night. This provides security while reducing impact on our neighbors.

Work continues on the interior. Most of the first floor wiring has been replaced. Much of the ductwork has been installed. The heat exchangers should be delivered in the next week and we will begin to hook up the system.

Thank you again for your patience with our closures. We look forward to returning to regular hours soon. The house is still open for tours on the weekend. In the meantime, please continue to check our website.
