1914 All-Oak House

1914 All-Oak House - 14161 Valles Mines School Road OAK: An amazing material, oak. The 3/4" X 6" siding was sawn from local trees. It has only been replaced on the south side where direct sunlight pitted it through too deeply after 70 years.

ROOF: The roof is the original galvanized steel. The front porch addition in 1986 continued the roof in matching detail.

This house has been in continous occupation since
1914, 95+ years ago.
