The renovation was extensive: wiring and plumbing had to be replaced, a new staircase was added, and moldings throughout the house were redesigned.

Allan has been working for 30 years, off and on, on a book on war memorials to be titled Discourses in Stone. In the book, he takes the reader through the history of the development of ten memorials from the 19th and 20th centuries exploring the battle to which the memorial was dedicated, and how the memorial successfully realizes the meaning of the event it is memorializing. He explores the symbolism of the monument, and the political stumbling blocks that the architect or the sculptor had to surmount. One chapter looks at the reasons why so many memorials fail.
