Pipes are added to bring heating and cooling to the 3rd floor. A new boiler, air handlers, and dehumidifiers will be installed in the basement and tapped into existing duct work.
A fire protection specialist sets up shop in Stowe's back parlor in preparation for new fire detection and suppression systems.
Windows have been removed from the 2nd and 3rd floors. Throughout the house, window sashes will be restored and 1960s double paned glass replaced with restoration quality glass.
Walls have been cut - this one in the dining room - to install new fire detection and suppression systems. Here, Jeff Marshall (left), construction supervisor, consults with a contractor on the location of additional lighting and wall mounted speakers.
