In early 2019 the Weeks Brick House & Gardens informed members and friends about the urgency of our window preservation project. The project addresses the repair-and-paint needs all 25 window frames and sashes, an upgraded replacement of 21 storm windows, the repair-and-paint of two exterior doors and frames, and conservation treatment and painting of the wooden gutters.
The WBH board of directors decided to complete this $25,000 project in two phases. The first phase included lower windows, entrance doors, and gutters, at a cost of $13,000. Phase II includes work on the upper windows (requiring an onsite lift), at a cost of $12,000.
We are pleased to report that members responded generously to the call for preservation action. Most of Phase I is complete, but the protracted public health crisis has delayed the start of Phase II.
Should you wish to contribute to the completion of this project, donations of any amount can be made online via Paypal at the “Donate & Shop” page or the “Membership” page of this website.
The future of the Weeks Brick House depends on the support of active and interested members and friends. Let’s keep up the good work to preserve “Grandpa” Sam Weeks’ historic house.
