Hopecote Guest House
Historic Slate Restoration Roof
The University of Tennessee
The Hopecote house was constructed in 1924 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as an excellent example of residential construction from the Country House movement of the early twentieth century. In April 2011, a severe thunderstorm with large hail stones impacted the existing historic slate roofing tiles and Architects Weeks Ambrose McDonald was retained by the University to examine the damages and to develop a plan for restoring the existing historic slate roofing system.
