After sheltering over 2,700 people, the house is beging to show signs of age. The house, originally built in 1920 and modified in the late 1950s needs a lot of tender loving care. The house is literally sinking into the ground. Upgrades to the physical stucture and heating system would allow the mission of the Blain House to continue for many years to come.
Proactively repair the foundation to prevent further structural damage to the house.
Energy efficiency upgrades including new windows and solar hot water heater.
Replace exterior with long lasting ecofriendly materials.
The total cost to complete these renovations will be around $100,000.
