Current & Upcoming Projects at Truant

Several interesting projects are on the Truant calendar right now. Some are getting finishing touches, others are right in the middle of an exciting construction schedule, and others are just getting started. Here’s the shortlist:

5-6 Lathrop Place:

Truant’s exterior restoration and stabilization of 5-6 Lathrop Place is the first phase of an effort by the Paul Revere Memorial Association to create an education and visitor center that will also provide full accessibility for the adjacent Paul Revere House Museum in Boston’s North End. This renovation will not only convert a neighborhood eyesore into a community asset, but will also benefit the many families, schools, and history buffs who visit this important historic site.

Bigelow Chapel at Mount Auburn Cemetery:

This historic Gothic-Revival style chapel on the Mount Auburn Cemetery grounds in Watertown needed a mechanical systems overhaul. Our Truant crew is nearing completion on the heating system—active heat should be running by the first of November—and all millwork and finishes will wrap up by Thanksgiving. It is always a challenge to route new mechanical equipment within existing historical structure and finishes, but one which we have a lot of successful experience in!

Mary Baker Eddy Historic House Museum:

The Mary Baker Eddy House Museum in Lynn is being restored in two phases. The current phase includes exterior restoration, MEP upgrades, new visitor amenities in the basement, and the addition of a fully accessible vestibule that will provide access to the first floor and newly renovated basement.

You can see a video of the initial exterior restoration activities here.

Winslow Homer Studio:

This is absolutely one of our most exciting projects to-date. The project consists of a complete restoration of Winslow Homer’s historic Scarborough, Maine studio, including a new roof, framing, underpinning, doors & windows, plaster, finishes, and a new addition that will bring the building back to its historically accurate floor plan as of Winslow Homer’s death in 1910.

The Winslow Homer studio has a rich history, and we are honored to be a part of preserving that. Our team has completed the pre-construction phase, and we are now preparing for construction to begin.
