Much effort is being made to save and restore the gambrel. Over the years, the lower clapboards on the house were buried, causing rot to the original substrate. Repairs are made. Small HVAC ducts make it easy to run and disguise the supplies in the gambrel. A cinderblock enclosure is covered to mimic the old rubble stone foundation. A gunstock post damaged during construction is repaired.
