Newly renovated Sagamore Hill features Timberlane Shutters
Former home of President Theodore Roosevelt now outfitted with Timberlane shutters
Montgomeryville, Pa., August 4, 2015 — Timberlane, Inc., a company providing custom exterior shutters and hand-forged hardware, now has its handiwork featured on the newly renovated Sagamore Hill home in Oyster Bay, N.Y. Sagamore Hill is the former home of President Theodore Roosevelt. In June, the National Park Service announced that the house would reopen to the public on July 12 following a complete renovation that included replicas of the exterior shutters that were first used on the home when it was built in 1885.
In total, Timberlane built 14 operable louvered shutters for the house after E&A Restoration of Syosset, NY provided samples representing the size and style of the shutters required. Combining craftsmanship and technology, Timberlane tailored their standard louver process to calculate rail and style dimensions and manufacture custom louver blades, tenons and custom tilt rods for the historic renovation job.
“As a company that prides itself on our work on historical renovations, it’s been truly remarkable to be a part of the Sagamore Hill project,” said Rick Skidmore, CEO and president of Timberlane, Inc. “The work that the National Park Service has done is tremendous, and we feel fortunate to have played a part in it.”
Sagamore Hill was the home of Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States, from 1885 until his death in 1919. During Roosevelt’s time in office, his “Summer White House” was the focus of international attention. Named after the Indian chief Sagamore Mohannis, the home boasts 15 bedrooms and three bathrooms, along with offices, sitting rooms, and a large porch on 83 acres of land.
