Passed first inspection on our School House - electrical service connection. No big deal, but an important milestone as part of occupancy. Next steps: power company connection and interior wiring.

These are the old boards from the main floor - white oak in various lengths and widths. Third picture, note the hand made square nail - late 18th and early 19th century. Fourth picture, you can make out the verticle saw marks from when the board was cut from the tree trunk. Mills changed to circular saws in the early 1800s. While not part of the floor topic, the fifth picture shows a rafter holding up the roof. The center joints are mortice and tenon with a wood peg, making the technique as 1790s and early 1800s.The roman numeral carved on the right rafter was used by artisans to assign numbers to rafters cut on the ground and assembled when building the roof - consistent with 1790-1810 timeframe.

After a too-long hiatus, we're at it again working on the School House. Next on the plan is to replace the flooring on the main level and repair it on the second level. We pulled up the old boards on the main level and put down a subfloor on which we will add antique oak tongue and groove planks. More pictures of that to come. Don't worry, we saved the old floor and will reuse the boards to repair the upstairs floor and build other things for the cottage. We're also planning to start work on a full stairway to replace the old ladder and hole in the ceiling to go upstairs. We'll be going in soon for a building permit that will clear the way for electrical and plumbing. Hopefully, things will go more quickly, then.

Coming Soon at Linden Hall Farm!
A stone cottage, called the School House, has been on Linden Hall Farm since 1790-1810, according to the Virginia Department of Historical Resources and other sources. Supporting this is information that the construction techniques visible in the cottage date from that time, including overlapping joints, straight saw marks, wood pins and hand carved Roman numerals in the rafters, and bark-covered floor joists in the cellar, During the Civil War era, the building was used as a school house for the Filler family and local children. Since then, it has served mostly as a storage building.

Our plan is to maintain the historic features of the building to the extent feasible, while we finish it for modern day occupation. We will restore the building with a new roof and floors, and upgrade it with insulation, electricity, plumbing, heat, air conditioning and appliances. Construction will begin in mid-November this year.

We hope that the cottage will be suitable as a B&B cottage or a rental unit, with a planned capacity of two people by next summer, and will be posting updates on this site. Be sure to follow us as we progress!
