Mt. Vernon George Washington's Estate
Multiple projects including the restoration of the venetian window, building of six 18th century reproduction doors, and
conservation of the west front of the mansion.
Mount Vernon, VA
Heceta Head Lighthouse
A multiyear project involving the conservation of 4 original windows in the watch-room and the building of 6 new windows for the tower and workroom.
Fort Yamhill was constructed in 1856 on the edge of the Grand Ronde Indian Reservation. Oculus restored and rebuilt the windows in the small bay situated right behind my Great Uncle.
Grand Ronde, Oregon
Yaquina Head Lighthouse
This large front door was made using 3" thick Alaskan Yellow Cedar and replaced an historically inappropriate metal door. This door serves as the main entrance to this lighthouse.
Fort Dalles is an 1856 military fort situated along the Oregon Trail. This multiyear project involved the complete preservation of all the windows in the Surgeon's Quarters.
Coquille River Lighthouse
In 2009 Oculus was contracted to remove an insensitive replacement window in this lighthouse. I replicated a replacement window using the original drawings from 1896.
Nishnabotna Ferry Building
My first project completely unplugged and a test to see if I could make sash by hand. 8 pairs of sash were replicated to match original drawings for this 1850 ferry house which is part of the Underground Railroad.
This church is part of a ghost town in southern Oregon. Once a vibrant gold mining community all that is left now are 4 structures. In 2009 I conserved 4 pairs of original windows.
