The keeping room~



KEEPING ROOM~
Our main room, or 'keeping room' features old and very rare pumpkin pine floor boards. These boards range in width from 18 to 24 inches each. The room features original large handhewn beams and headers, original wainscoting on the lower half of the room that is one board, over 30 inches wide.  This room is a very nice and generous size. There is some floor to ceiling wide board paneling in the room as well as a paneled fireplace wall, and some half-timbers of 18thc. wood with original finish/patina on some upper walls.
The focal point is the largest of three restored and working fireplaces with individual flues, and in this room, a working 'beehive' oven as well.
Windows in the room are the original 9 over 6, and many have panes of old wavy glass. They also feature 2 sets of folding, solid wood interior shutters on each of the 3 window.
There are  also old handmade wood, wood-pinned, 9 over 6 storm windows for the house.
The fireplace wall is all hand planed and has a long, 18thc. hewn beam mantle, and huge stone hearth.
The doors are 2-board (wide board) batten doors with iron thumblatch hardware and iron hinges.
