Spring House Repairs
Si Rothrock of Reidsville Building and Restoration and his helpers have completed repairs to the the Spring House roof to prevent it falling in. This entailed removing the slate shingles, cutting out all rotten boards, and filling in with a new layer of freshly cured oak boards. They covered the boards with a thick synthetic felt to protect the wood from the elements. Even though the project is completed, we are still raising money to pay off all costs incurred. We are selling Painted Slates, Bamboo and Bluebird houses. And, our 2nd annual Run with the Cows 5K in September 2015 will also help with these costs.
