Caring for an older historic structure is an on going issue. The porch and balcony were replaced in 2015, but surviving South Texas weather can be a rough fight. The bottom porch experienced weathering and rot on two of the slats, so after the leveling in July, work on the porch was begun and complete, to include painting. This made the porch much safer for all. Now plans are in place to add insulation to the bottom of the structure and the attic.The skirting on the sides of the structure need replacing and additional work done. So, contractors are being sought. Hoping to get some bids soon. All funds for repairs are donated via charitable organization, such as the Texas Preservation Foundation Fund via the Coastal Bend Community Foundation or public and private donations, so please consider a tax deductible donation to the Bee County Historical Society, Inc!! Thank you!!
