Repair gutters on Conference/Education Center (S-30) and replace shutters and roof

Lincoln Home National Historic Site » Repair gutters on Conference/Education Center (S-30) and replace shutters and roof » Document List

This project consists of replacing shutters on the Education Center (S-30), as well as replacing the Education Center roof. Work consists of the removal of existing shutters and replacing with in-kind wooden shutters. Current shutters are hinged, one-over-one louvered panels, probably made from cypress, and painted with green latext paint.

This project also consists of the removal of existing wood shingles and replacement of approximately 3000 square feet of wood shingles, new metal flashing, and gutter systems.

The building was built in the 1960s by a private owner and was later purchased by the federal government as a conference center. Although modern inside, the exterior appearance is sympathetic to the Lincoln neighborhood. It currently houses a conference room that is frequently reserved by not-for-profit community groups, as well as an extensive Living History clothing storage area and office, the volunteer coordinator's office, and a small employee fitness center.
