Any of yall know someone capable of making molds, replacing, etc. Mathew Henson - Henson Ornamental was recommended but was told he's out of biz and moved off to Houston.

Looking for a company who's experienced working with the Texas Historical Commission and their standards to do some work in Wichita Falls, we'll be starting work after the first of the year.

This is some of what we've got. House was built in 1909.

I just going to tell you, it’s going to be hard to find someone to do that. If you do it’s going to be mucho denaro

No doubt its specialized.

This is the main house, it's got a two story carriage house behind it that's also part of all this. We're going to scaffold the whole thing and do a bunch of masonry work, remove & rebuild over 60 windows, probably a dozen doors, pretty much take the whole front porch/balcony apart down to the dirt and rebuild it. The plaster work on the interior is about the only thing I'm getting hung up on. It's a big dang project.

It looks to be in the same condition of most of the public schools in Wichita Falls.

That's no lie. I actually voted today for it.

I think... we'd be in Old High's zone come that time, but hopefully 10 or so years from now that thing will be a fading memory.

I’ve done several of that type of work, we did a historical renovation at the Terry county courthouse a couple years ago. Do you have any of the existing cornice that may have fallen to make a mold with?

I'm in Holiday district, but have many friends going through the Rider/ Old High debate right now. You might want to check with someone like Randy Wachsman or Eddie Holcomb for your plaster recommendations. They might be able to get you going in the right direction.

they have a few like that with different spacing on the dental part and different widths, you would be best off sending them a pc of what you have to match right.

Don't check with Randy, he don't know his arse from a hole in the ground lol, he is my first cousin. Somebody about to spend a bunch of money, going to be really cool when you get it finished.

I watched it done once on tv. It is definitely a rare skill.
