Restore Interior Sidelights

The Dugan Mansion has a vestibule that originally included interior beveled lead glass sidelights. Unfortunately, they were stolen many years ago along with the exterior sidelights.

Our goal is to create an almost exact replica of the original based off old Dugan photos. 

This restoration project is in progress. Thank you to Robin's Stained Glass Studio in Fort Wayne for help[ing us with this project.

Fireplaces

There are 5 fireplaces within the Dugan Mansion. These wood fireplaces are no longer in operable condition however, our goal is get some of them back in safe working order. Based on a recent inspection of the chimneys and fireboxes, we have decided to go with a gas line, grates and logs in the Foyer, Library and Cigar Room. 

Total Project Cost: $3,425

Solar Shades

To help protect some of the priceless artifacts from sun and fading, we want to install Solar Shades on some of the Mansion's windows.

Solar Shades block heat and glare without sacrificing the view and provides UV protection as well. Pictured below is a sample solar shade.

Total Project Cost: $1,600

FINISHED !!

LIBRARY
&  PAINTING

Several areas need a fresh coat of paint and repairs to the ceilings and cracks such as the Library, Foyer, Parlor, Cigar Room and Half Bathroom. 

In addition, we'd like to remove the popcorn ceiling and current wallpaper in the Library and go with period colors such as Mrs. Dugan would have had in her time.

Total Project Cost: $11,565
