Cocoon House Restoration Update

SAF, with the help of Josh Myers, recently restored 420 louvers on the Cocoon House. The 70 year-old louvers were sanded and refinished with delicate care to maintain the original color and grain pattern. Several louvers were beyond repair and were replaced by custom milling new louvers to match the wood and design of the original.
Josh Myers of Myers Painting completed the work. Mr. Myers generously provided the restoration work to SAF at a discount to promote our continued restoration and maintenance of important architectural residences such as the Cocoon House.
