loose joints with epoxy saturation techniques.

Remove all shutters from building. Assure that they are









properly marked so that they can be replaced in their

original location. Repair as necessary. Duplicate all

missing moldings. Repair listed doors. Utilize epoxy

saturation techniques to preserve as much of the original

fabric as possible.

wooden patches and epoxy saturation to preserve as much of

the original fabric as possible.

replacing rotted portions with suitably sized presure-

treated material. Utilize epoxy adhesives. Check porch deck

framing. Repair as necessary to provide sound fastening
