The house, which is the inaugural project of the Handmade Houses Program, a 1772 Foundation supported partnership between HBI and North Bennet Street School’s preservation carpentry program, has experienced considerable physical improvements over the past year. The partners have rebuilt chimneys and foundations, removed façade shingles, and installed a new Federal style door, thereby transforming the appearance of the historic house. North Bennet Street School and HBI continue to bring top craftsmanship to the preservation of this unique building, and we hope to find the right buyer who will complete its rehabilitation and become a passionate steward of this historic property.
