Living History Farms - Flynn Mansion Kitchen Addition

Urbandale, IA

Services provided on this project:

Architecture Overview:

Originally built in the 1860’s, this stately country farmhouse was once part of the state prison honor farm. It has operated as a house-museum since the 1970’s and is the centerpiece to one of the largest agricultural museums in the world. A series of historically accurate dinners each year and need for a handicapped accessible toilet room on site lead to the need for recreating this original summer kitchen addition.


Engineering Overview:

RDG used in-house Mechanical and Electrical Engineers to supplement the survey with recommendations for future heating, cooling, and power distribution improvements.
