This project involved the restoration of the Rufus King Manor, a 50-room manor home of a signatory of the US Constitution and one of New York’s original US Senators, and its conversion into a museum and community center. DFGA was commissioned to review the use program and to prepare contract documents for the restoration.
The project included removing years of accumulated grime and layers of previous "restoration work". The house also received for the first time central heating, air conditioning, and humidity control, smoke detection and fire alarm systems. The exterior restoration involved the replacement of the roofs, removal of inappropriate twentieth century alterations, and the rehabilitation of the exterior shingle walls, windows shutters and doors.
