Executive Director, Michael May has recently been working on Nantucket house documentation. The documentation process, which is currently in the last stages of completion was based on an eighteenth century historic home. The process included: house visits, photographing, researching, drawing up a house floor-plan and identifying the important architectural features. The photograph below features a detailed image of a late 18th century addition to the house, a fine Federal mantel containing a decorative dentil band and reeded pilasters.
Michael’s notes (see below) and photos will be compiled into a house history and an architectural house description. This service is not currently listed on our website but we are always available to be Nantucket’s preservation resource and will help when/wherever we can.

The cursory documentation will hopefully lead way into the 2014 spring 3D laser project, which Preservation Institute Nantucket (PIN) plans to undertake. For further information regarding PIN and this process CLICK HERE.
