House to save!
WHOM do you know who is just yearning for a c. 1780 western Vermont farmhouse with a pristine post and beam frame?
The house itself is quite plain inside, fitting to its time and place. There are few parts to salvage beyond the frame. perhaps the clapboard and brick, doors and hinges. The window sash are c. 1900 or later.
HOWEVER:The frame is chestnut with gunstock posts. It could be exposed to the roof if an owner wanted.
I will be measuring and analyzing this house on Monday - if the roads from here to there aren't too icy.
More later after I have dimensions.
