|Bringing Back Holleywood||
Adrian supplies terra cotta-colored steel for the roof, and unfurls it in rolls from a machine in a trailer.
You don't just order a metal roof. Each tile has to be measured and cut to spec. Adrian is a metal master of the old school, who has spent decades learning to accommodate the quirks and vicissitudes of old houses. We are grateful to him for his workmanship and generosity. He and his brother bequeathed matching windowpane glass discarded from their parents' farmhouse in Bantam which was built the same era as Holleywood was.
who we are
We are a couple of Upper West Siders from NYC who never set out to buy an old mansion in Connecticut. But the moment we walked through its massive front door, we were smitten. The info on this site is earnestly cobbled from a variety of sources, including the web. Please let us know if we've gotten something wrong, or if there's a story about Holleywood you'd like to share.
