Historic Huguenot Street Restoration – Jean Hasbrouck House

Lothrop Associates worked to develop appropriate historical detailing that is cognizant of the historic character of the 18th century building. The project primarily involved re-designing the existing roofing assembly in order to allow further ventilation of the roofing material, i.e. the roof’s wood shakes. A specialty designed screwing pattern was provided in order to that circumvent issues with splintering of existing wood joists. The design was thoughtful in its efforts to upgrade the existing assembly in a manner that did not overwhelm the historic authenticity of the home.
