Silas Deane House | Wethersfield, CT
Exterior restoration of the Joseph Webb House
(1752) and the Silas Deane House (1770) at the
Webb-Deane-Stevens Museum in Wethersfield.
Both buildings were stripped of lead paint down to
barewood and the clapboards and trim were
carefully restored. Wood features were
repaired in place and where replacement of
clapboards was necessary, they were scarf jointed
and fastened with rose headed nails. New paint was
selected based on historic color research.
