The Carriage House
The carriage house is two stories
feet wide by twenty-four feet deep, with a front shed roof, an outhouse
on the left hand side, and a block
chimney. The exterior walls are rubble stone with stucco, with some
minor cracking. Several wood windows are in poor condition
and need replacing, as well as, some of the wood lentils, which are
sagging and deflected.
The lower level concrete floor is broken, uneven
and in poor condition. The
second floor is finished space in good condition. The roof rafters and asphalt shingles appears
to be in good
condition. The floor appears to be level.
The front shed roof appears to be sound and in
good condition. The roof facia boards at the front and rear are
deteriorated and need replacing. The roof ridge appears to have about a
three-inch sag in the middle. The outhouse roof also needs to
be replaced with new rafters, decking and shingles. Also, the block
chimney will need to be raised about two feet.
It appears that this building is basically structurally sound and in
fair condition. It will require some remedial work: several windows and
window lintels, new posts, new center beam and footings under the posts,
a new concrete floor, new facia boards and soffit and other minor
