Renovations in the Carriage House Museum Shop

Recent visitors to the Mansion may have noticed the new glass paneled doors of the Carriage House Museum Shop.

What was predicted to be a straightforward installation proved to be more complicated, as the old wooden doors, badly in need of updating, produced a considerable amount of rot underneath the granite thresholds of the shop’s entryway.

Our long-time wood and technology conservators, Bob and Sebastian Cariddi, removed the rot and the new doors were installed by O&P Glass of Augusta last month.

The doors are just another step in the on-going renovation of the Carriage House, which hasn’t seen substantial updates since it served as the offices of PDT Architects in the 1980s.
