Bump out section of fence at Robinson House (HS-10) around new HVAC equipment for efficiency

Lincoln Home National Historic Site » Bump out section of fence at Robinson House (HS-10) around new HVAC equipment for efficiency » Document List

An approximately 8-10' section of wooden fencing between the Robinson House (HS-10) and the Jenkins lot (Block 11, Lot 5) will be "bumped out" about 2 feet to accommodate new HVAC equipment (see PEPC #99851). Currently, the HVAC equipment is too close to the fence and the house to allow for proper air flow. The new equipment is slightly larger and requires more clearance and air flow to work properly and efficiently. The fence and an access gate, which currently comes off the corner of the house, will be removed and a 2' section of white painted wooden plank fencing, matching the current fencing style, will be installed perpendicular to the house on the corner. Two 4-5' sections of white painted wooden plank fencing will be installed within the Jenkins lot, and a 2' section matching the other 2' section of plank fencing will complete the bump out to meet up with existing wooden plank fencing along the lot line. This will screen the HVAC equipment from the main pedestrian walkway along 8th street while providing enough air flow around the units. Three new post holes will be created for the two 4-5' sections in previously disturbed ground along the historical fence line. The returns will use the existing post holes to connect to the existing fence.
