Goodness of Fit
This is the interior of the South door, which is currently the back of the house. Note the exensive wood trim, which is original to the 1700's.
This is a photo taken from the South elevation exterior, you can see the staircase inside and the orientation of the staircase to the Southern exposure.
This is the current rear or Southern elevation. Same belt course and water table. The dentil molding from the current front of the struture is missing, but was likely added in the 1800's. Also note the roof doesn't really belong to the Colonial period, and is more of a Federal kinda thing.
Jeff was hard at work yesterday with a backhoe, trying to clear the massive amounts of snow from the 1000 foot driveway. Should be back to business soon!
Have a great day!
