A report by architect Norman Larson and structural engineer Jason Ross on the state of Hall-Dyer House, paid for 50-50 by THS and a grant from the NH Preservation Alliance, will be completed any day. The report will guide our renovation plans, and indicate estimated costs. We’ll keep as many old features as possible, while updating the building’s practical aspects.
Meanwhile, A&M Construction has just finished improving the back corner of the house: Skip Mason and crew replaced a section of clapboards, a porch and steps. Thank you to THS members who removed the old porch and concrete supports; and to A&M for their good work.
We are realizing that our front lawn is a spacious and under-utilized space in the middle of the Village. We hope to level it and encourage more community use. Perhaps we could host a Yard Sale? Have a village dance party? Hold an Antiques Appraisal Day under a big tent? Just ideas so far......Let us know yours!
