Update: April 6, 2021 – Installation completed of the south front doors (1710).
Donation of 18th century doors by our master timber framer, Scott W. Brown, were restored by Frank Zambella of Belle Interiors (309 Montauk Hwy, East Moriches, NY 11940). The doors will be hung in the 1710 south front doorway of the Ketcham Inn. The door frame retained the historic pintle holes, so it was apparent that a double leaf door was required for this doorway. The historic 18th century mortice and tendon, oak tree pegged doors were disassembled to review structural integrity and reassembled for installation, which will include pintle and strap hinges in their historic locations.
