Howard Hall Farm Half Timbered Mansion Stone Wall Lime Mortar Restoration & Repointing

Half Timbered Mid-Century Mansion

This important Hudson River house was built of timber with stone in fill, often referred to as half timbering. In this case, the timbers were dressed with finish boards, but no drip cap. For years the water got behind the boards and in the walls, breaking and cracking the walls. This led to many bad repairs with Portland cement, which made it worse.
