Building Facade


This historic Home is now the Mayor of Boston's Official Residence, and is managed by the City of Boston.

PAF Architects worked with The City of Boston, to develop a Master Preservation Plan  to understand it's many preservation issues.  Once  the Master Preservation Plan was completed we were asked to direct and oversee a number of structural repairs. The structrurl repairs included repairing a filed truss in the attic and roof system. Also requiring repair was the the flight of a winding staircase rising from the first floor to the second floor. In both instances steel reinforcing was needed to bolster the wood framed systems.
