Recently, the Castleton, VT. Historical Society, asked me to assist in the planning of a large,10ft x 16ft display case. This case will provide shelter, as well as public viewing access, for a restored antique carriage. The funding for this project is a one-time grant with no provision for monthly expenses i.e. heat or electricity. I am not a builder but I was involved in the restoration of the carriage and therefore have concerns for proper storage. My main concern is excess moisture and sunlight inside the display causing deterioration to the carriage. I believe proper positioning of the display can eliminate much of the sunlight but not the moisture. My question is, has anyone been faced with a similar project, and if so have you any suggestions on how to properly vent the building?
Thanks in advance for your replies.
For your next finishing project, look no further than the Colours of London, a curated collection of 120 colors from Mylands.
