We recently completed a lead abatement project at Oakley Plantation, a historical site located at Audubon Memorial State Park in Louisiana. Under the direction of general manager Lee Patterson, this historical home lead abatement was completed on the entire exterior of the three-story house in preparation for the contractor to repaint. The six-figure project took about 12 weeks with our crew of eight. The house was originally constructed in 1799, so great care was taken to ensure the integrity and history of the house were maintained during the abatement. The history of the house features a young John James Audubon spending time at the property where he sketched and painted 32 bird species. Audubon’s paintings of birds are considered to be the archetype of wildlife illustration in the United States.
