Siding Renovation

Over the next few years the exterior of the Mansion will be undergoing some much needed renovations. The cypress siding is going to be replaced or repaired, the cedar shingles will be repaired, the front porch will probably be reconstructed, and lastly the shutters will be repaired, repainted to their original color of Charleston Green, and reinstalled on the entire house (not just the front). There will be several phases to this major exterior renovation. Phase I is taking place now where we are replacing the siding on the east and west elevation of the house from the second story down. Phase II will hopefully happen next year, where we will do the same to the north and south elevations. Phase III should occur in 2025, with repairs to the second floor siding and cedar shingles. Finally, Phase IV will be the shutters. We are very excited to have this work done to protect the house. We are also very grateful to the Mayor and City Council for making sure this project received the funding it needed.
