1946 Redell Street: Dancy Terrace

Post by iloveionia » Tue Jan 03, 2012 7:03 pm

Met with Lisa today (and Gloria and Joe.)
There was a point when the city actually mothball boarded, as such is the case with this bungalow and near ALL of the bungalows at Dancy Terrace. Now I supposed they don't enter homes anymore and just put a million screws around the edges and do a crap job.
Lisa will put us on the agenda for the January meeting, we may get deferred if she is not able to complete the paperwork in time, but that puts us priority for February.

In basic, I see the following:
Traige porch floor: plywood floor overlay, repair 1 step, replace facia boards [7 plywood, deck screws, paint for floor, nails for facia, 1-2x6 board/step]
Frame in front porch window (window missing) with 2x4s and then cut plywood to inset proper, through bolt (use existing,) and frame three sides of exterior window molding (header is there.) [2 2x4s, 3 1x4s]
Drill vent holes in plywood, add screen, paint all boards black [screen piece, 1 gallon flat black paint, rollers, trays)
We MAY need to add a second 2x4 and 2 sets of carriage bolts for 8 windows (windows are NOT double hung) [4 2x4s 8' long, 16 1/2" carriage bolts 10" each, 16 nuts, 16 washers}
Repair 2 spots of missing/broken siding [2 lengths of siding, 8' each]
Replace 1 exterior window ledge [1 4' ledge]
Replace 1 foundation crawl space "window" (framed wire) [1 2x4x8, mesh wire no larger than 2'x3']
Cut to size and through bolt bathroom window
Cut rot and replace small sections of corner board trim [1 1x4x8]
Back door is NOT through bolted, cut to size, add 2 2x4 pieces of 4' each with 4 total carriage bolts (bolt, nut, washer) [1 2x4x8, 4 1/2" carriage bolts, 4 nuts, 4 bolts]
Front door is overlayed over the trim, Lisa requested we "make it look like a door" [2 2x4x8s, new hasp lock with keys, possibly new hindges]
Prep and paint exterior (all) [5 gallons primer, 5 gallons paint, 1 gallon trim, 1 gallon accent, paint brushes, paint cups, paint trays]
Need to check roof: may be leaking around vents, would need to repair if so
Trash bags for general clean-up
Landscape: 4-1 gallon pots of "Mexican Petunas," 2 bales of pine needle straw
2 solar powered lights (one front, one back)
Will need to run the generator (gas)

The interior of this bungalow has been altered somewhat. More than likely there was a wall/door combo between these two rooms. That being said, the trim is still intact which is a great bonus and it would not take much to return this to its former charm.

These are set up as 3/1 with a utility room. Looks are deceiving from the outside.

Yeah! I''ve been in several of those houses. They are all open floor plan like that...every one I've been in. I think they were built that way.

I keep thinking if they could work as offices. Maybe with one or two of them as "commons" for meeting rooms.

There have been other visions too, and they would all work. My vision was restoring the cottage court, like Hoyt Terrace, except for people of more modest means. The homes are smaller and less grand, but you could have a common walkway with fountains and landscaping like Hoyt Terrace very easily, managed by a homeowners association.

The other thing we've talked about is having individual small boutique businesses in them...picture vintage clothing, upscale wine shop, antiques, etc. Kind of like Five Points. Now picture a couple of small cafes and coffee shops with tables out front in the common area. Each cottage painted a different historic color.

There are so many possibilities with Dancy. It absolutely drives me crazy what is happening with it.

We received the final order for 1946 a few weeks ago.
We are set to begin mothballing this week, likely Wednesday.

Here is a basic work plan for prep and paint:
East Side = Gloria and Joe
North Side = need 2 volunteers
South Side = need 2 volunteers
West Side = Nicole

If there is missing siding on your wall or crawl space to cover I will do that for you.

We'll put on a hasp lock and have 4 keys available (one per side as these cost $$)
Paint and supplies will be inside the house.
You will need your own scraper and brush cup to hold paint.
You will want to bring a jug of water to rinse brushes.
Debbie, do you still have PSOS brushes? Or did will use these already.
I will dig in my yard to loot too.
We are going with Oscar's color scheme: blue siding, cream trim and red accent.
Window boards need to be painted black with cream color sashes.
Do those on your side.
I can schedule a June 30 work day to hopefully get more volunteers.
9 a.m.
