Photo Hunters: Antique



My Antique Home

The beams and roof of my Vermont home were made from large trees 106 years ago. If you click on the photos, a new window will open so that you can view them large.

This first photo is shot directly overhead at the highest point in the roof.


This photo shows a large beam with the bark from long ago still on the wood.

Thank you for looking at my attic! See you next week when the theme is Soft!

  4. What fabulous old beams you have in your attic. Do you have ghosts?

  5. What a great idea and what a lovely house - thanks for sharing.
    You know I love old buildings and architecture. You might have seen some of my post about it from Norway and with houses hundred of years old.
    Wishing you a wonderful end to your week:-)

  9. Wow! This is fabulous. We have a lot of this antique houses in the provinces and any of them are also still livable just like yours.

    Happy weekend!

  13. From what I can see you attic isn't full of junk like so many are! Is there a reason we only saw the ceiling?? I think it's amazing that those trees were 106 years old. It looks like a very sturdy place, too!

    Thanks for stopping by earlier. Looking forward to next week's soft side!

  15. lovely old wooden houses are beautiful, and very much antiques :)

  16. Very cool! It must get pretty cold up there in the winter, though ;)

  17. Amazing when you consider that most of the power tools we have today were not available then. Yet most of the older homes are in so much better shape than the newer ones. Fantastic photos and use of the theme, thanks for stopping by and visiting me too.

    :-)

  20. Wow - 106 year old beams - that is awesome. I check out your entire house - beautiful, especially when the picture was taken. I love the composition of it with the land and they sky. Was it taken during sunset or sunrise?

    Have a wonderful Sunday...

  21. It looks so romantic ! I just wished to sleep under them !

    ReplyDelete
  22. Not only is it amazing that the timber used to build that roof is 106 years old, but also that back in those days they were able to build the roof with such a high pitch! Amazing! :)

  23. What a lovely home you have, and I *love the wood!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Great "antique" photos! There's nothing like an old house. My farm house will be 100 years old next year. There's something very romantic and charming about a house that has stood for so many years.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love the old wood. My house is nearly 120 years old but the attic is finished.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Your home is beautiful, and what a neat thing... wood that old!

    Happy hunting. :)

  34. That looks wonderful. I contrary to what some others said, I think it looks like a warm place, not haunted at all. But maybe I'm wrong... ;)

    Thanks for visiting.

  38. Oooooooooh how lucky are you - doesn't it just thrill you to live there?

    A bit of history...

    ReplyDelete
  39. I'm impressed.. but are they strong enough?? Scares me.

    ReplyDelete
  40. That truly is wonderful that the beams and planks have lasted this long already! So many people are now taking planks from old barns to redo their homes. Love it! Thanks so much for visiting me:-)

  41. I always marvel at such antique dwellings. Such history they carry in their walls.

    ReplyDelete
  42. awesome, beautiful pictures!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Wow, indeed! They don't build them this sturdy any more. Does it creak when the heat comes on? We had a church in PA that had heavy wooden beams across the top and it would creak and crack when the temperature changed... very spooky at night in the dark.

  44. Since I'm originally from New England, I can really relate to these lovely old beams. Your home is just beautiful and so typical of Vermont and New England. Really enjoyed your photos and thanks for visiting my place.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Beautiful beams, although it seems a shame that they were wasted on the attic. Nice photos!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I have lived in a house from 1839. So I really enjoy these beautiful photos!!

    Greetz from Holland!

  47. I bet you just love laying on your back in the attick and staring at the beams... *grin*
    Thanks for the visit :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. That's a very cool shot and a great take on the theme.

    Plus, that Coke sign above could have worked too!

    ReplyDelete
