This old Victorian farm house was probably a sight to behold back in the day. It had lots of gingerbread and decorative work all the way around it. Now the paint is gone and in many places so is the clapboard exterior. Here is a shot of the attic window on the west side of the house nearly 30 feet from the ground with late afternoon sun. Notice the beautiful native white oak boards used under the exterior clapboards. There is one board in there that is nearly two foot across. Try buying a board like that today.
I was struck by the grain of the exposed oak boards as well as the random design they made combined together with what is left of the exterior boards.
