I don’t want to give you the impression that we looked at the rot conditions I showed you in the prior post, got depressed, and then gave up and went home. Preservation and restoration are about fighting. Below are some pictures of some new fresh lumber (look Mom no rot) being used as temporary shoring in the north rooms to allow us to begin to fight back. Two lines of shoring in the NW room and a smaller bit of support in the corner of the NE Dining room. This will allow us to work on the roofs above.
