Barrett House getting a fresh coat of paint

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
