That is a cool looking house. Is it old or just made to look that way? That will be a serious set of stairs! Are they going to finish the pine or leave it bare?

All new house. The contractor has to finish them. I told them to put finish on it as soon as possible. I don’t want any dirt ground into it. The contractor was using a chainsaw to cut notches. He wasn’t paying attention and splattered oil on one of the beams. Luckily at a point that they could hide it. Owner is thrilled with the look.

Thanks Monte. The roof, siding, and the porch reminds me of the old farm houses in our part of the country. I haven’t seen one built like this for a long time.
