GAINES CENTER FOR THE HUMANITIES

Commonwealth House, pictured above, was the first building to be renovated for the Gaines Center for Humanities. Strict historic preservation guidelines were adhered to in the restoration of this and two adjacent houses, the Bingham-Davis House and the German House. Our work included complete preservation of the exterior and interior as well as historically appropriate additions. The exterior work on these projects included new standing seam terne metal roofing and gutters, brick cleaning and tuckpointing, wood trim and window restoration. The interiors were completely repaired and refurbished. A working fireplace was totally re-constructed in the middle of the Building. All three projects adhered to the Kentucky Heritage Council requirements.
