A few photos of the evolution of the house.
When first constructed the house did not have the roof over hang on the eve and gable ends.  The house had a well inside on the lower level. The house has 2 fireplaces, the lower level fireplace also has an oven. The house originally had wooden gutters along the roof eves and these were directed into a well built below ground cistern near the northwest corner of the house.
