Imagine what it would be like to maintain a 1800 Mansion. Historic New England will be painting Barrett House this year. Work has already commenced.
|It’s been 19 years and it’s time for a fresh coat of paint|
|Step one is removal of the shutters|
|Not a job for those who feel unsteady on ladders (me)|
|Since this is historic property ,every step is carefully cataloged.|
|Each shutter will be numbered with instructions for restoration|
|The power of sun and weather|
|Some shutters will need a lot more work|
