1-725-8375: East Wing of Government House
1-725-8376: Haas House Renovation

The Haas House is a property within the Restoration Area in St. Augustine,recently
donated to the State and leased to the Board by the T.I.I.T.F. An important element
of the Board's activity concerns archaeological exploations within St. Augustine and
environs. This work is performed by students from uF and/or FSu under the direction
of professors from those institutions. The Haas house is the headquarters forlthose
student groups andthelplace where they can live free of charge while in St.
Augustine. Wer6 it not for the Haas House all archaeological work in St. Augustine
would effectively stop since the students cannot afford to pay for lodgings while
here. It order to makelthis property suitable for such use itlmust be renovated:

The rotten back porch, two stories high, and the outside staircase leading from the
porch,lmust be replaced; some of the flooring is rotten; the asphalt roof shingles
that have been used for siding must be replaced by properlsiding, rotted facia
must be replaced, weather stripping added to all openings, the attic and x side walls
Ipr6pertly insulated, adequate climate control added, the electrical system brought
up to sk code, the roof professionally examined andx repaired as needed, the entire
structure fumigated. In addition, since the buildings=will be used as a dormitory
itm must be made to comply with the Life Safety Code.

East Wing Renovation, Government House. The East Wing was torn up fourteen years
ago inthe conduct of an archaeological search.Sox The search was eventually discon-
tinued but the East Wing was never restored toits original condition The
appropriation received for this job will only allow lus to pour a slab so that at least
the space can be used for storage. We will also be able to obtain architectural
drawings encompassing the entire renovation of the Wing so that when and if we
obtain the approriation to continue the job we will have the plans to complete the

In *iew of the relatively small nature of these projects and the relatively small
sum of money involved, it is suggested that both projects be tolled into one project.
