We continue our journey through the renovation process at the Samuel Noakes House at 101 West Cork Street/201 South Braddock Street. Updates are posted each Tuesday through the PHW blog, following the progress with virtual hardhat tours. The previous entries may be found at the PHW blog at part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5, part 6, part 7, part 8, part 9, part 10, part 11, part 12, part 13, part 14, part 15, and part 16.
Last time at the Noakes house, we saw some interior work. This time, we take a look at some of the exterior changes to the building. The Braddock Street side has a new cornice and new paint scheme. There are other exterior changes taking place as well. The porch facing Cork Street has had the access stairs removed from the east side, and new tread installed to the west. The wall has been patched from where the old meter stack was removed, and drainage has been worked on at the entrance to the former barbershop. You can tell the exterior looks almost complete now.
