Notes on the Haas House Renovation Clay Stratton, Contractor

Stratton began work April 2, 1984 on the Haas House, stripping asphalt

shingles from the west facade. This exposed vertical sawn siding, obviously

reused material. The wider boards which had grey paint, and perhaps whitewash,

were 9-7/8 inches wide. Studding layout was marked on building felt by a yellow

line. Apparently some early framing exists behind the wall on the basis of the

studding interval. The siding on the north elevation is 4-inch net square edge.

Some portions were painted grey; others an olive green, the olive green having a

yellow undercoat. A considerable amount of this material appears to be reused.

Contractor is renailing the siding as necessary as they progress up. One piece

of boarding seems to exhibit evidence of fire. This is on the second floor just to

the north of the window at sill height. The siding is secured with wire nails--

looks like about 8 penny common.

4/5/84 Haas House South facade, first floor under porch--evidence of reusing,

7-inch net baseboard with 3/4-inch bead run on the top, painted out grey with a

white primer beneath.

4/5/84 Haas House Asphalt shingles go behind the chimney stack on the east

facade. Concrete block cistern under the old porch on the north side. The top

has been knocked in and rubble used to fill pit.
