Here’s our Wednesday update on the restoration project at the Old Tolland County Court House Museum:
Upper copper work continues this week. Rotted timbers were found in the belfry framing above the bell level as well as significant rotted wood throughout the columns. It’s believed a combination of dutchman and epoxy repair to the columns will be sufficient. A game plan for the upper framing will be presented at this week’s construction meeting. There will be a change event for this…that means more cost!
