Historic Structures Reports & HABS/HAER Documentation

Diana Painter, principal of Painter Preservation & Planning, has developed measured drawings of buildings for a range of purposes from documentation to preparing for rehabilitation of a structure. Painter Preservation & Planning collaborates with other design professionals to provide services in HABS documentation and rehabilitation design.

Martin Farm, Petaluma, CA
Documentation of the Martin Farmstead involved creating measured drawings, photographic and written documentation for archival purposes, as a record of this 17-acre in-city farmstead. As these small farms are lost to development, it is important to document the buildings as a record of a way of life now that now exists in such environments only in the past.

M. Vonsen and the First Street Warehouses, Petaluma, CA
Documentation of the three warehouses and mill on First Street in Petaluma involved creating measured drawings, photographic and written documentation for archival purposes, as these buildings were demolished for redevelopment. This documentation records Petaluma’s history as a port that got its start shipping agricultural goods. These buildings were an important part of this history that deserves to be remembered, and a dramatic presence on the waterfront.

D. Miller Residence Renovation, Henrietta, TX*
Development of a new color scheme and landscape design for the grounds of this early twentieth century Classical Revival structure complemented the sympathetic renovation of the house interiors.

United Methodist Church Parsonage Renovation, Seattle, WA
The measured drawings of this 1916 four-story wood-frame parsonage were undertaken in preparation for future renovation of the structure.

Hartford College Music Library Rehabilitation, Merion, PA*
Renovation of the Hartford College Music Library, within a Neo-Gothic stone building, involved removing earlier unsympathetic renovations and restoring the structure’s original vaulted ceilings.

CRRNJ Terminal Building, Liberty State Park, NJ*
Historically accurate drawings and sketches were developed to illustrate the potential for adaptive re-use of this historic terminal and site at Liberty State Park.

* Developed while employed by others
