  1. Love this house. I am almost certain exposed beams were covered up by dropped ceiling. Front entry interior arch is partially covered?

      Jcaraher, I agree with you, this is a wonderful house, with very nice period detailing.

      Just 2 quick notes. The party covered front entry arch is not uncommon. The interior ceiling height is not as tall as the exterior entryway arch. The tall exterior preserves the look of the facade, while managing the lower indoor ceiling heights.

      In addition, this would be very late for any exposed beams. Most homes today with exposed beams would never have had exposed beams when built. Plastered ceilings were always the desired finish because an open beamed ceiling allowed dirt to filter though the floor boards above into the room below. It was also fashionable, a sign of wealth to have a fully plastered interior. You can always identify a beamed interior where the beams were intended to be exposed because there has been some effort to finish them. Very rarely would they have been left torn and rugged. Almost all of the open beamed ceilings today resulted from a home owner tearing out 150 to 300 year old plaster ceilings in order to make their home ‘look’ early. Unfortunately, almost all publications and television shows neglect to explain this fact, leading to the idea that exposed beams were common, when in fact they were a rarity.

  2. Perfect little Hansel and Gretel house. I love it!
