Restoration of this elegant residence was—and remains—an enormous undertaking begun when the Trust accepted ownership of Hay House from the P.L. Hay Foundation in 1977. Most recently, efforts have focused on the roof, exterior details, and remedying moisture problems.
Current restoration efforts are focusing on eliminating water seeping into the house and minimizing its effect on the building’s structural integrity. As part of the current efforts, the team plans to prevent “rising damp” and weatherproof exterior surfaces.
