The masons continue to work on underpinning the eastern foundation and preparing for the sub-foundation duct chases.

Keith has almost finished laying new tongue-and-grooved heart-pine flooring in this space.

Ray Cannetti has started to re-install the stone hearth and surround in the Drawing Room. The hearth is just about laid and he should start on the surround tomorrow.
M-112 (Old Dining Room)
Steve Chronister continues to prepare for the new flooring in this space.
Austin continues to repair the two king post trusses in the portico.
Bill and Mac continue to install the portico decking and the steps have been painted. A temporary handicap access ramp is also being installed to allow visitors to use the central entrance on the western side.
The archaeologists have found what appear to be post holes for a semi-circular section of fencing and a road bed that is centered on the mansion’s western lawn.
