Question from the Medfield Energy Committee: “Brick masonry is tricky to insulate – How will you determine how much insulation you can add? How will the preservation of the millwork affect adding

Exterior walls will be furred out four inches to accommodate new systems and insulation. Walls and ceilings will be finished with drywall. Where walls are being furred out, existing historic woodwork will be carefully removed, cataloged, and reinstalled except in kitchens and bathrooms, to preserve the visual relationship of the wall elements. If any trim cannot be retained or reused, it will be replaced in-kind with profiles that match the existing trim.  On walls that are not being furred out, historic woodwork will remain except at kitchens and bathrooms. Unpainted woodwork will remain unpainted and will be gently cleaned and revarnished. Painted woodwork will be gently cleaned and repainted.
