Refinishing a Frank Lloyd Wright house – Second Coat Sikkens Cetol 2/3

Posted on Posted in Boulter House News

It’s a beautiful October day and we are applying the second coat of the Sikkens system of polyurethane coating to the Frank Lloyd Wright designed home, the Boulter House in Clifton, Ohio, a neighborhood of Cincinnati, Ohio. We’re filling the finishing nail holes with a mixture of brown iron oxide and the Cetol 2/3. It’s a paste applied to the large finishing nail holes to the twin 4″ x 14″ Douglas Fir beams that span the 24′ depth of the home. The top roof board is nailed on the west side of each twin beam. Correction to the date of the design, the home was designed in 1954 and constructed in 1956.
