Colonial,Farmhouse, Single Family - Charlotte, VT
New construction is nice but often uninspired and gives you a false sense of permanence without demonstrating it. The framing is cultivated softwood, (emphasis on "soft"), exterior sheathing is "pieces parts" wood (chipboard or OSB), interior walls are sheet rock (two layers of paper with plaster in between) and the exterior siding is vinyl (read plastic). While these materials, when assembled, can be called a house, the sum of these pathetic parts can hardly be called a home. Now give me a structure that was built in 1830!! By my math, this edifice is pushing 200 years old and still going strong. The backbone of this monument to Mom and Apple Pie is most likely a hand hewed Oak or Chestnut frame, sturdy plaster and lath interior walls, solid plank sheathing and old growth, quarter saw'n real wood clapboard siding. Now that is not just a house, it's a real home; where you grow and shelter your family, create a lifetime of memories, it's your sanctuary, your safety zone. It was there in 1830, it will be there for you and your family, and it will be there long after you are gone. Now that is permanence worth owning, loving and caring for. So what are you waiting for, make an appointment to see it and experience for yourself what a real home is before it's gone. Because when it is gone it will be unavailable for the next generation or so. Now that is a real home.
