"The Hollow" roof

John Marshall's boyhood home in Fauquier county called "The Hollow" finally has a new roof, and tan lines. The roof was started by the restoration department in 2007, but due to supply problems could not be finished before winter of that year. The crew laid the final 7 rows needed to finish the roof by May 22, 2008. As you can see, considerable oxidation occurred over the winter months. The next phase of the project is to reopen the two back windows and install period reproduction heart poplar siding over almost the entire house.
