2008 - Sills, Masonry, and Roof Structure

With the emergency structural repairs completed by the timber framers, SOH went out to bid for a general contractor to do the remaining exterior work (roof, sills, masonry, clapboards, doors, and windows).  The sills, masonry, and roof structure were mostly done in 2008.
