62-64-66 Brock St., (late 1820s) Kingston, Ont.

  

This project has involved developing drawings and specifications for the restoration of the building shop front. An interesting part of the project was preparing a building history based on the evidence uncovered during the restoration work. This exercise uncovered the fact that although the building presently looks like a mid-19th C. commercial structure it started life as a late 1820s residential building and as such is probably the oldest timber frame building remaining in the downtown commercial core.
