Burdell Blacksmith Shop Repairs
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Make repairs to the Burdell Blacksmith shop at Olompali State Historic Park to return the structure to its historic appearance. Work will replace missing planks, battens, the sliding door, and windows; and place horizontal re-sawn redwood planks to disguise the modern stem wall foundation. All newly added materials will match historic fabric in quality and dimensions, and new components will be assembled using historically correct construction techniques. Additional work will paint the structure white once restoration work is complete.
Project consists of maintenance and repair of historic resources in a manner consistent with the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties with Guidelines for Preserving, Rehabilitating, Restoring, and Reconstructing Historic Buildings (1995), Weeks and Grimmer.
