Keith Lescarbeau inspects the condition of the oil house after 3 years of exposure to the weather and elements. Most of the paint has held up well but the east & north sides have sustained some damage and it needs to be addressed and fixed.

The lighthouse itself did a bit better than the oil house but the north side in particular needs to be coated with more lime to protect the bricks.

Paint on the top of the tower has sustained severe damage in just 3 years. The entire surface needs to be ground down and repainted.
