WWFH: Historic Rehabilitation Workshops
In order to protect South Carolina’s only presidential site for future generations, Historic Columbia Foundation (HCF) is totally rehabilitating the 1872 residence. The major elements of this first phase include exterior repairs to the masonry foundation; wood sills, studs and siding; windows restoration and replacement (when necessary) and the installation of a new wood-shingle roof.
As we move through the next few months, HCF is hosting a series of hands-on workshops. On July 18, in partnership with general contractor Huss, Inc., attendees learned how to restore and maintain old windows.
In August the following workshops will be held:
August 8: Mending Masonry
August 29: Final Touches
