CBF received a generous Special Projects NSDAR grant in 2016 to restore home’s original brick foundation was deteriorating which led to plaster and paint damage to the walls on the first floor.  The need for this project was critical for the structural integrity of the historic farmhouse.  Foundation brick walls were cleaned and tuck-pointed where mortar had deteriorated.  The knee wall was backfilled with limestone and secured with a concrete cap.  After the basement repairs were addressed, the wall damage in the first floor rooms was patched, sanded, primed and painted.
