One of my absolute
favorite parts of this house is also one of the smallest; the Vestibule.
The craftsmanship is just unbelievable. Take a look...
This photo isn't
the best, and I will take better pictures one day, but it does show the
very cool floor and the amazing striped walls all made from different
types of quarter-sawn wood. It also gives you the first impression
of the house as you enter. From front to back it is over 50 feet!
Again, sorry for
the quality of the picture, but it's a very tight space to photograph.
This room was basically unchanged from the time the house was built
(minus the painted board, which is no longer there...)
The is a picture
of the arched ceiling. The only thing I plan to change about this
Vestibule is the addition of an antique light fixture to light it up a
bit. There is no light in here and it is always so dark.
This is one little gem that I plan to show off. : )
