Sill Beam Repair – Phase II

Once the sill beams on the north and south sides of the Main House were replaced, the second phase of restoration and stabilization could occur at both the Main House and Kitchen Wing portions of the historic Manor House. This included the replacement of the sill beams on the east and west ends of the Main House, along with the center beams, and the replacement of the Kitchen Wing sill beams. Existing piers were repaired and new intermediate piers were constructed. Completing this phase of the work gave the house a secure foundation to last for many more years. This work was funded by a grant administered through the Florida Division of Historical Resources.
