Hogan/Belcourt house conservation – Part 5: Interior

Once the restoration of the exterior of the Hogan House was completed, our attention turned inward to the interior of the house. The interior had suffered greatly due to the years of abandonment and neglect.

The process of restoration begins with recording the “as found” condition of each room to identify original construction, original finishes and any identifiable spaces such as closets and storage areas within each room. We photographed the various rooms and features to provide a visual record. Where possible we will take samples of the original finishes, such as paint and wall paper, in order to replicate these materials.

The information we garner from the survey will then be used to develop our restoration plan for the interior of the structure.  The pictures below are a small sample of the photographic record of the interior features of the Hogan/Belcourt house.
