Document Description
Rehabilitate the powder room at the Larkin House in Monterey State Historic Park, restoring its appearance , but contemporary function. Replace cracked cast iron vent pipe (performing asbestos abatement) and paint new pipe to match the exterior as does the existing. Replace below-ground plumbing connection to the sewer. Clean extant "art" tile and vanity sink and rehabilitate faucets or replace them in kind with reproduction faucets. Salvage the linoleum floor tile if possible, or replace if necessary with reproduction linoleum. Wash, iron and re-hang the textiles and paint the walls in the powder room. The Larkin House is an individual national landmark and a contributor to the Monterey Old Town National Landmark District. A DPR-qualified archaeologist will monitor all subsurface work. In the unlikely event that archaeological resources are encountered, work will stop in that area until the archaeologist can evaluate the find and carry out appropriate treatment.
