From Chemical Peel to New Make-Up: Mitchell House Gets a New Coat of Paint

MH Trim and Door Painting December 2013Well, shingling was completed this spring and the sashes were painted last year. Now, the trim is getting some sprucing up thanks to the good work of Jim Tyler and his crew. This work is being completed with the funding of a grant for the Mitchell House’s exterior conservation. While ideally all the painting would be completed at once, it is not always easy given grant funding and timing. But, for the trim it was better to wait until Nathan Killeen had completed the shingling because he had to remove some of the corner boards and other trim pieces in order to properly shingle. So, come this summer season, Mitchell House will sparkle even more! A special thanks to Jim and his wonderful crew who you can see here hard at work on the southern façade of Mitchell House.
