John Chesson has graciously offered to share his story and images of his ongoing adaptive reuse project at the Samuel Noakes house, 101 West Cork Street/201 South Braddock Street with PHW. We will be releasing these stories through the PHW blog in the coming weeks, following the progress with virtual hardhat tours.
Last time, the final framework began going into the house and defining rooms. That work continues during this update. As you can see, with the framing going in, the work is shifting focus from making the building structurally sound to making the building function in 2012. Wiring, plumbing, and lighting needs are being reconciled with stone walls. The house even yields a few more surprises during some additional demolition.
