Note
From Doug Gilpin 2/21/99:Approx. 18' x 40'1 story with 2/3 basement (West)-1/3 crawl space (East). No under-roof living space.Metal Roof, no dormers, bevel siding, diagonal wall sheathing.The basement is fully laid in stone and has pegged timber vent frames with extant diagonal bars (barred cellar windows).The chimneys have stone bases, and brick stacks.The original building was approx.18' x 24' with a frame superstructure.It was significantly enlarged toward the East, but in the very late 1800s/very early 1900s. I imagine the entire superstructure above the foundation was either destroyed or dismantled.The crawl space foundation consists of crudely stacked stone piers -- not as nice as the basement stonework.Floor framing is all circular sawn, though the original wood sills appear to be (hewn) timber.
