Lost City Museum
OVERTON, NV [March/2016 - Ongoing]

The Lost City Museum is a building in Overton, NV built in the 1930’s by the Civilian Conservation Corps. The original structure was built with adobe walls and after some ill-fated attempts to save the original exposed adobe walls in the early 1990’s, the decision was made to cover the adobe walls with lime plaster. Coda was tasked with replacing this original lime plaster, which has begun to fail after 20+ years. With the help of adobe expert, David Yubeta (US National Park Service- retired), Coda came up with a plan for repairs to the walls with a new lime plaster system. The building is on the National Historic Register of Buildings all repairs were done within Secretary of the Interior guidelines. The project came in within budget and with no change orders.
