like they used to
31 July 2013
Most times in my work, I get involved with projects with fascinating aspects to them. When you work with existing buildings, especially “old” ones, you just never know what you’ll find. It always amazes me to walk through old farmhouses.
How did they live? What were they thinking about during the day? What was this house like decades ago when people originally lived here? Was it romantic as we visualize it or was it difficult? Did they even stop to think about it? What stories does the house still tell if you “listen”?
I am not presenting an opinion necessarily about these photos other than to simply share a few curious images. Enjoy.
solid stone walls with wood inserts for window anchorage
solid stone walls…everywhere
I wonder when they added oil storage tanks for fuel for the furnace…there are two chimneys and likely was a fireplace on each level at both ends of the house
necessity is mother of invention…wood pin joint
and last, but not least…real wood…super wide boards that you just can’t get anymore…wow!
