Reveal: Restoration of the Original Structure
At its core, the farmhouse was a one room, one story storage depot and safe house, constructed in no windows and one door; built during the 1790's. Over the past centuries, successive generations changed and added elements: new rooms, a second floor, addition parlor room and bedroom, kitchen house separated by the classic Kentucky "dog-trot" and more. Before revealing the original log construction in one of the main rooms, my cousin consulted experts and used select construction teams. It was quite a project.
