|The stone building at Sevier Park was not restored at the time Sunnyside Mansion was renovated to house the
Metro Davidson Country Historic Zoning Commission and had fallen into a serious state of disrepair. The flat
roof had been leaking for years and the water had rotted the wood flooring, interior plaster walls, interior trim
elements and had eroded mortar on the exterior walls. As a result there was structural damage to the load
bearing stone walls. The large double hung windows had been heavily damaged by the lack of paint and were
missing panes of glass. Some of the Greek Revival trim elements on the front porch were missing including
one of the round columns as well as one of the square 1/2 columns against the stone wall.
GGC working closely with Fred Zahn of the Historic Zoning Commission and Mitzi Curtis of Metro Parks
formulated a scope of work that would address the buildings structural and cosmetic problems while returning it
as closely as possible to its original condition. As you can see from the before and after pictures below, the
transformation truly earned the commendation from the Metro Historic Commission.
