The next phase of restoration of the Fairbanks Home at This is the Place Heritage Park in Salt Lake City, Utah has begun. The sill, lintle and molding restoration is documented here.
The kitchen door and three lower window sashes needed attention. The original door in the kitchen addition was in need of stripping the many layers of old paint, restoration to the woodwork and reattaching the hardware.
Here are photographs of the inside and outside of the door.
And here is what it looks like after the paint is removed. The large number of nails, 54 in one cleat was surprising.
The three lower window sashes all looked liked like the one in the photograph, the lower rails were rotten and the sash did not stay together. Two sashes in the original part of the house have a bead detail on the frames and mullions, the window from the kitchen addition has much simpler detail.
More on the work later, have roughed out all of the rails and styles for the sash frames and the mullions are all finished, so it is time to chop and cope.
