The house was built in 1898, I don't know the age on the rest of 'em. The lady who lived here for the last 30 (kind of an eccentric recluse) liked to use old materials to build things. Part of the barn is very old, the left side was built within the last five years. The carport is old, shop is a bit newer. The deck I rebuilt but reused the old lumber which I found out was redwood from an old water tank, I thought it was strange the boards measured 1.5" x 7". And I've got my own pile of old lumber I've used to build what I've added.
