The drawing room mantle, floor, and walls - before and after.  This hand-made mantle is representative of early Federal design.  The walls are original pine paneling and the beaded wainscoting is also original to the house. 

One corner of the drawing room with some victorian furniture - the center hall is to the far right.

 View from living room to center hall and stairs. - before and after.

Center hall with view to front door and the restored front door.  Note the strap hinges.  This door is a double thick door called an "Indian" door to protect against arrows.  The logs and new chinking are exposed in the far right photograph.  The rooms in the house are divided by hand crafted beaded wood walls.

Throughout the log house, the restoration was painstakingly done.  The original hand crafted moldings, chair rails, and other wood and metal finishes were removed and restored.  Where there was damage, the missing parts were recreated.  The beams were left exposed, all of which are hand hewn and beveled.  The floors are deep rich hart pine, all of which except for a section in the living room, are original.  Everything possible was done to save and refinish all of the original wood work and hardware.

The original white washed log walls in the dining room and to the right is the dining room restored with the door opened to center hall showing part of the front door. 

The dinning room restored, but showing the beaded wall divinding it from the hallway.  The door is opened to the center  hallway showing the front door.  

The second floor center hall looking toward the stair case landing and to the right is the same view of the restored landing as it looks today.
