The FOURTH of 10 feature projects to celebrate our 10 Year Anniversary! Eighteenth century Georgian timber frame structures have become one of our in-house specialties and favorites.
We are honored to have been working alongside the Connecticut Daughters of the American Revolution on the Governor Jonathan Trumbull House in Lebanon, CT for the last 7 years. Since then we have discovered, through building analysis and architectural archaeology, that the building was constructed in 1725/26 as a “square house” and then expanded to be a center hall Georgian around 1746. The two separate chimney masses were rebuilt and combined in a wishbone shape to emerge from the roof as a center chimney structure when the house was moved circa 1823.
We have served as historic structural consultant and planner on the project since 2014 as part of an ongoing comprehensive restoration campaign.
