Summary: Mvaintenance Report


I


This late victorian cottage built in the 1870's
gone many additions and is presently suffering badly from
proper maintenance. The structure is basically sound but
wall and floor surfaces are in poor condition.


has under--
the lack of
the roof,


The most serious damage is due to moisture which has allowed
both rot and termites. Rot being found mainly in the roof over the
west enclosed porch and bathroom areas and west valley of the center
front roof area. Flooring associated with the roof areas is also
rotting, along with the floor of the eastern main entry. Termite
damage is most extensive along the south-east corner of the front
building. Most all of the furring in the building has been destroyed
by termites but no real structural damage has occurred. All exterior
walls are badly weathered to the point .that the paint is badly cracked
revealing much of the natural wood surface. Floors and windows will
need, extensive replacement.

Metal flashing is evident
in other parts of the room
although the flashing in the
north elevation is invariably
covered with roofing compound
and the true condition
cannot be detected.


I" x 9 I/2" wood members
cut in a decorative pattern
with Z" molding at the roof
line (verge board has
6 1/2" exposure).






The center section of the
north elevation is known to
be a more recent addition.
As a result, the verge
boards were cut to align
with the new fascia. The
cut is made thru the decora-
tive pattern producing an
awkward detail.


From the evidence of
roofing compound, we can
assume the flashing is
deteriorated and needs
replacing.




The east gable is in worse
condition than the west
gable. This may have
occurred as a result of a
tree being directly adjacent
to the house on the original
site. This may have caused
extended presence of moisture
and therefore greater
deterioration.

Any restoration work should
include recutting new verge
boards at these locations.

have extended across the
lower portion of the wall.


General condition: The siding
appears to have weathered well.
The siding on the gable portion
suffers from peeling paint,
and checking whereas that on
the lower portion is less
weathered.* At approximately
the height of the interior
ceiling, two boards are
unpainted and appear to have
been covered at the time the
wall was painted. On these
boards there are marks at
intervals where joist ends
must have been framed. Above
these boards the remenants of
composition shingles can be
seen nailed across from one
eave end to the other. The
siding below the door thres-
holds is also unpainted and
contains some nail holes.

The siding has nail holes
where scraps of fabric have
been attached.

On the south side of the door
several boards are missing
or pulled away from the fram-
ing. One board near the base
appears to have insect bore
holes. There are nail holes
in the siding apparently from
some lath strips which were
nailed on to receive metal
lath and plaster. Several of
these strips remain and the
pattern of expanded metal
lath can be seen on the sid-
ing. At the base of the door
are small boards nailed on as
plaster stops. Above each
vertical door frame member
there is a vertical cut in
the siding extending up
through three boards. A
piece of semi-circular trim
covers one vertical cut. One
board directly over the door
is missing revealing the
framing beyond.


The framing appears sound.

on the now exposed siding. The
trim at the top of the north
jamb is cracked.


There appears to be some
infestation on the underside
of the threshold. There is a
hold between the bottom of the
threshold and the siding where
a trim board has been removed.
The top of the threshold is
worn and the vinyl file which
covers it is worn off in
places. There is a gap between
the threshold and the interior
floor.


The gap is possibly the result
of a missing piece of trim.

The siding adjacent to the

off to accept a piece of door
moulding which no longer
exists.

This board is split and broken
along its bottom edge. At the

have been broken to facilitate
a hole bored through the fram-

probably for electrical wiring.

Plaster

























Exposed

The area surrounding the
north door is plastered.
























A floor joist from a removed
porch runs the length of the
center section.


The plaster surface is
cracked and the majority has
fallen off. The wooden lath
which is non-exposed is
severely termite infested.
The wood framing members
exposed beyond the lath are
also termite infested. Some
metal lath at the top of the
plaster remains and is rusted
and torn. The boards used as
plaster stops are also
infested. The bottom plaster
stop appears to have been the
base board of an interior
room and a scrap of quarter-
round hangs from it by one
nail. The board at the top
is unpainted and has several
rusty nails protruding from
it. Both boards stop short
of the post on the south side.


The joist is loose and badly
termite infested. Large
pieces are broken off. There
are flooring nails remaining,
nailed at an angle and rusted.
Under the window there is a
drilled hole with the end-of
an electrical wire hanging
out. Near the south end
there is a large rectilinear
notch cut out.

Rake Board

























Trim


A wide lx trim board occurs
along the top edge of the
wall excepting the small
recessed south section.


In the recessed south section
there is a wide I< board
covering a section built out
to be flush with the wall on
either side.

A smaller trim member runs
across the top of the two
previously mentioned boards.
This board has a beaded
bottom edge.








Quarter-round trim at top
edge of rake board. The
quarter-round has been sawn
in small lengths to fit in
between the missing joists.


This board is deteriorated in
the north corner. Holes have
been drilled in it for elec-
trical wires. At its south
end the board is warping.

This board is sawn with a
slightly angled end and
consequently does not fit
flush with the adjacent
post, leaving a gap.

This board is cut off at the
north end of the window. It
is sawn at intervals to allow
the joist ends (no longer
present) to pass through. At
the south end there is a gap
between this board and I><
under it. Above this board
exists scraps of a badly
deteriorated trim member.


Many pieces of quarter-round
are missing. What exists is
split and hanging from the
rake board.


Absence of paint and pro-
truding nails mark where
joist ends once framed in.
