Maintaining an historic property is a big challenge—and often an expensive one. Often, the materials used in the original construction are no longer available or only available at great expense. The Barnacle Boathouse roof, damaged in Hurricane Irma four years ago, is a case in point. Finding roofing tiles similar to the originals, which meet the current Miami-Dade code, has turned out to be an expensive proposition. Thus the Barnacle Society’s current fundraising effort!
Without a sound roof, we will eventually lose the entire structure! Your help is appreciated!
We have currently raised more than $26,000 toward our goal of $70,000.
