Captain Hardy Smith House

The Captain Hardy Smith House is located in Dublin, Georgia. It is the oldest home in Dublin on its original location. Built in 1873 it is located at 307 West Gaines Street in Downtown Dublin.

The restoration of the home included searching for mature pine suitable for cutting the large barge boards with no knots. The ones used came from the Altamaha Swamp around Hindsville, Georgia.

Master Bedroom Closet

The Master Bedroom closet needed a little expanding. So here it is after taking down the ceiling of the closet. Sure enough bat crap came raining down......on the right evidence piled up.

So had to clean it up and take a spray hose to get er done.....

Took all the tongue and grove boards out and had to clean them up.

The way you redo an old house is use as much of the original materials. Then mark how they were originally put together. Here they all are primed and ready to put back up.

Like putting a puzzle together....up they go..

Next you hire some good

One of the finest closets in Dublin all redone with Lizzy's clothes hanging.
