Smith's Castle

BTGA reviewed the exterior shell of the Smith’s Castle and provide a Historic Structures Report identifying rehabilitation needs, direct restoration work to be done that fit within the Associate’s current State Preservation Grant, and provide a final report identifying work completed. Our report provided an overall history of the property, a construction history, our firm’s architectural evaluation of the exterior of the building, analysis of the existing conditions, an outline of maintenance requirements, and recommendations for proposed work with budget estimates. The report created a single source document that the Association can use going forward to plan for building maintenance needs and apply for future grant funding for restoration and repair work.

 

Currently in construction, the renovations include siding repair, structural stabilization, installation of historic gutters and downspouts, re-roofing of the main house and ell, and a new replicated front door for weatherization needs.
