Someone posted a comment about the carriage house that was included on the property. The only photos I have before it was destroyed by fire are below.
You can see above what remained of the carriage house. It was not in the best of shape
This picture just gives you a indication of the width of the boards on the sidewall. Some measured over 12" in width.
This photo was to show the mortise and tenon joints used in construction. You can not see them very well, but if you look close enough you can see the wooden pin protruding from the corner post a little ways down from the top of the post.
Even though the photos below were taken after the fire they clearly show the joints used in the construction of the carriage house. The top picture shows a piece of framing that still retains its wooden pin.
