The basic fabric appears to be in good condition, however
the following deficiencies were noted.

1. The trim board next to the roof on the west gable end has a
hole approx. 1 1/4" in diameter in the south end. There are also
some unused electrical insulators on this trim.
This hole should be plugged with like material and painted.
The insulators should be removed when the trim is next painted.

09/30/92 This deficiency has been not been corrected.

2. There are three holes in the wood ceiling. These are
approximately three inches in diameter and are apparently remnant
from previous lighting fixtures. The ceiling boards which are
about four inches wide, exhibit a rather unique beading pattern
composed of three parallel beads approximately 3/8" wide running
down one edge.
A short length of duplicate ceiling board should be
produced, from which circles would be cut to match the pattern in
the ceiling where the holes are. These plugs should be glued in
place with a water resistant adhesive. They can be held in
place with a narrow batten fastened to the back of the plug and
laid across the top of the hole until the glue sets. The plugs
should be primed before installation and finish coated after they
are in place.

09/30/92 This deficiency has been corrected.

3. Some of the cove mold surrounding the ceiling has come
loose. This should be tacked back.

09/30/92 This deficiency has been corrected.

4. There is a 1" PVC conduit extending from the ground, along
the east face of the southwest column, and into the attic space.
This should be painted out to blend with column.

09/30/92 This deficiency has not been corrected.

5. There are several slates missing from both the east side of
the main roof and the west gable end.

09/30/92 A loose slate was noted on the north roof near the

ridge, and at least one slate was missing from the south side.

A critical inspection of the roof and attic space should be
made to more clearly determine the condition of the roof

09/30/92 There is no outward evidence of termite or other wood-
destroying insect infestation, however it is recommended that a
qualified pest control company inspect the attic space via the
concealed scuttle in the west end of the ceiling.

6. The bronze tablet located on the east face of the northeast
column shows minor signs of active corrosion in the form of a
green stain on the stucco beneath it.
The stain should be removed from the stucco and the site
monitored. It the stain reappears, the tablet should be removed,
cleaned, and remounted.

09/30/92 Remove bronze staining with a police of one (1) part
ammonium chloride (sal ammoniac), to four (4) parts of talc or
diatomaceous earth, add household ammonia to wet down for
application. Cover with plastic film to prevent rapid
evaporation. Remove police when dry. If stain persists, re-
apply. Wash down with non-ionic detergent and rinse with copious
amounts of clean water.
