It was almost crowded out at Thomas Point Light for the August 10th preservation workday. There were 14 volunteers out there this past Saturday for a calm, slightly warm day on the Bay. While there was more painting this time, there were also many other jobs completed. Volunteers successfully delivered an 80 pound pot-belly stove that was restored by Hobie Statzer. After hoisting the stove aboard and getting it into the sitting room they assembled the attachments.

Volunteers primed the first ladder up to the big assembly deck with a coat of Rust-o-leum and added some skid-resistant treads to the rungs. The exterior doors to storage shed were painted. The door to one closet used for ladder and equipment storage was also painted. Two of the exterior gray deck boards were replaced and given a coat of primer. If you haven’t made it out there and were hoping to paint one of the two remaining exterior sides, you’re too late. That was also completed. Volunteers also scraped the exterior “overhang” eaves of all six sides and applied a coat of paint. For a little variety the exterior was caulked where needed and in the sitting room the small holes were filled in with wood putty compound.

Now that all the lead paint has been removed, it was time to apply new non-lead paint in the kitchen. Volunteers applied two coats of gray paint to the pantry. Some quarter-round moulding was installed in two areas of kitchen. A new antique ceiling lamp was installed. It must be starting to look cozy out there!

Volunteers removed a rotting threshold under JELD-WEN exterior door and made a temporary repair. In another area of the light volunteers added rust-o-leum primer to several sides of cupola right around the bottom trim of glass panes.

Hobie took all the paintbrushes and paint cups home for cleaning. That’s gotta be a LOT of brushes!
