Bids are being sought to repaint a 154-year-old antebellum home in Tallahassee, FL.

According to the Florida Department of State, the contract includes painting the exterior of the historic Brokaw-McDougall House and storage shed.

Completed in 1860, the two-story frame structure includes a full-width veranda and balustrade balcony and is considered one of Tallahassee’s finest remaining antebellum homes.

Bids are due Jan. 31. This project is a re-bid of a project previously let on Dec. 16.

Scope of Work

The project involves painting the house's exterior, shutters and storage shed.

The contractor will paint wood siding, trim, shutters, sashes, and hardboard surfaces with a wood primer, followed by two coats of flat latex paint. Masonry and galvanized metal surfaces will be coated with a two-coat flat latex system.

The contractor will apply an acrylic waterproofing system to concrete patios, porches, steps and platforms. All other concrete surfaces will be sealed and coated with a flat finish latex system.

The project also includes coating ornamental iron, structural iron and steel, and ferrous metal surfaces with a three-coat acrylic system.

About the Home

Completed in 1860, the two-story frame structure includes a full-width veranda and balustrade balcony and is considered one of Tallahassee’s finest remaining antebellum homes, according to the Florida Division of Cultural Affairs.

The Classical Revival building was constructed on land believed to have been first inhabited by Apalachee Indians from 1650 and 1750.

Construction of the home cost nearly $6,000 and featured 14-foot ceilings and Corinthian columns. The Brokaw-McDougall family and its descendants owned the home until 1973, when it was sold to the state of Florida.

The Brokaw-McDougall House has been included on the National Register of Historic Places since 1972.

Over the years, the historic home has served as a meeting and event site, home to the Historic Tallahassee Preservation Board and, most recently, the offices of the Florida Department of State’s Division of Cultural Affairs.
