JOB Construction did a remarkable restoration on our 100 year-old Dard Hunter Mill, taking great care to maintain important historic details. Their work is impeccable.

The Dard Hunter Mill at the Gomez Mill House had significant rot on its wooden sill beams requiring replacement of many sections and adjacent posts.The stone fireplace and chimney was collapsing requiring us to rebuild it. Here it is all shored up from the inside to allow us to begin the process.
In order to remove the rotten sills, the brick nogging had to be supported.Some areas had to be removed completly.

Authentic techniques were used for the constructioin of replacement timbers so they would match the originals in appearence.Here's the completed fireplace. Now all we have to do is put the walls back together!
The final product.And the exterior with a new entry deck and rail. Success!
Across from the Dard Hunter Mill is the Gomez Mill House. The grounds were in a deteriorated state and in need of some sprucing up as seen in this picture. Here's one of two millstones from the original mill that had been set in the walkway. They both had to be excavated and reused in the new landscaping plan.
New drainage was installed after all the old stone walks were removed.In goes the new walk.
One of the salvaged millstones set into the new walk and a new set of stairs.The completed product.
