    Nicely proportioned early house, would it be correct to call this a Saltbox?

    A little hard to tell how much original fabric is left, but beautiful original wide floor boards in photos 16 and 19.

    Looks like a lot of house for the money!

    A saltbox (lean-to roof) is two stories on the front & one story in the rear. The pitch (angle) of the roof is generally the same on both the front & rear slopes.
    I suspect there may be an earlier house buried somewhere under the later renovations.
    I am particularly interested in the frame overhang at the gable end attic level. This feature is a hangover from the early 18th century, usually in CT. It is very odd for it to appear in North central New Hampshire.

      Thank you for the explanation Les, it gives me a much better understanding of a saltbox.

      And for pointing out the overhang on the gable ends, very interesting feature.

        I personally would never call this house a saltbox. The reason why it was called a salt box is because it looked like an old salt box according to legend and the long roof represents the door to open. That’s according to legend and I’m not even sure at what point people started using the term saltbox. None the less, the term now refers to long roof. Maybe like someone else said, at one point the back portion may have been updated in the 19th century and erased that look.
