MONTEBELLO, NEAR BALTIMORE, MARYLAND.
Built in 1812. The detail, both exterior and interior, was extremely minute in scale and departed from classic traditions. This house resembles HOMEWOOD both in scale and character in moldings.


WYE HOUSE, TALBOT COUNTY, MARYLAND.
Built about 1780. The original manor-house was built in 1668. A fragment of this now used as an outbuilding. The main building contains the principal rooms and connects by corridors with one-story wings in which are the library on one side and the domestic offices on the other. The whole facade is two hundred feet in length.


SPRING HOUSE AND DAIRY, ESTATE OF GOODLOE HARPER, BALTIMORE COUNTY, MARYLAND.
Built about 1800. Houses of this type were built near a spring or cold, swift-running brook. There is a sunken trench all around inside the outside wall about 18 inches deep and 18 inches wide. The cold water enters at one side of the house and goes out the opposite side. the water is regulated by a gate so that it will not rise beyond the height of the milk jars which are set in the trenches.

I used to work for a millwork company in Delaware. The owner had most of the White Pine Series books, original editions. They were kept in the break room and I spent a month of lunch times carefully going through them. They greatly fueled my love for early American architecture and woodworking. Very nice to have access to them again. Thanks.

Thanks Rick. We always loved the White Pine Series. Glad we could bring them alive here.
