A project to paint the exterior surfaces of a historic New Hampshire homestead built on the state's first mainland settlement is up for bid.

The New Hampshire Department of Resources and Economic Development is looking for contractors to paint the Odiorne Homestead at Odiorne Point State Park in Rye, NH. 

Odiorne Homestead in Rye NH

Exterior wood surfaces at the New Hampshire farmhouse built in 1800 will be repainted.

Bids are due on May 23. A mandatory pre-bid meeting took place on May 14. 

Scope of Work

The contractor will paint exterior wood trim surfaces including fascias, soffits, rakes, cornerboards, friezeboards, door casings and window casings, according to project documents. Exterior siding will also be coated and the windows in the home will be re-glazed. Wood surfaces will be coated with an alkyd exterior primer and 100% acrylic latex finish.

Surfaces that are not to be painted including hardware, machine surfaces, lighting fixtures and similar items must be removed from the structure before painting.

Artist Richard Moore featured the Odiorne Homestead in his Odiorne Point: Twice-seen photography collection.

Surface preparation includes hand-washing the mildewed areas with a water/bleach mix. Previously painted trim should be scraped and sanded clean. Power washing, disc-sanding, wire-brushing, open flames, and use of power tools (with the exception of belt sanders) are not permitted.

Homestead History

Built in 1800, the farmhouse on the Odiorne Homestead is a framed house with a central chimney and gabel roof. According to the state's Division of Historical Resources, the house was built on the site of the first mainland settlement in New Hampshire, dating back to 1623. 

Members of the Odiorne family lived there until 1942 when the U.S. government acquired the property and renamed it Fort Dearborn, where it was occupied by U.S. Army Coast Artillery Corps throughout World War II.

Today, the structure serves as a headquarters for the New Hampshire Division of Parks and Recreation. The site is listed on the state's Register of Historic Places.
