Hidden Log House: Before

Who: Neil J
Where: Yadkinville, N.C.

My wife and I purchased the Davis farmhouse in the spring of 2007. As you can see from the before photo of the front of the house, our new home wasn't in any way symmetrical. As we began demolition to remove the warped tongue and groove wall planks, we quickly learned why the house was a little off center. Under years of layered paint and crooked planks lay one of the most beautiful treasures I had ever seen. Little did we know that this house was originally built with hand-hewn forest pine.
