Progress at the North Carolina State Capitol

At this writing, Aaslestad Preservation Consulting, llc is in the middle of a project to document the NC State Capitol building (1840) in Raleigh. The exterior surfaces are being documented both in line drawing and hybrid imagery. When this is wrapped up, the interiors will be given a similar treatment. These drawings will then be augmented by a series of detail drawings capturing the many rooms’ unique door and window profiles, friezes and such. Stay tuned!
