Buxton Cape c. 1840

This is a cape in Buxton, ME that is circa 1840. It has been an extensive restoration and is ongoing today. There was major foundation and sill issues. Most of the frame was hand hewn.  There was an addition attached to the right gable with a minimal foundation that was sensitively dismantled and was eventually reattached. This slide show shows much of the foundation work and timber framing as well as the eventual trim and siding. Scroll down further to see some of the indoor work.

 

Here are some of the photos of the interior work. Work is ongoing. There is a center chimney with three fire places, much of the original trim remains as well as  much of the original plaster. There was a half bath put into the upstairs. The plaster was fixed using traditional lime plaster.
