I love board and batten - not overdone as in a conspicuous neighbourhood updo on Paul Street in Picton, but the 'just-folks' red barn painted practical wood cladding of this house, and of our drive-shed at the farm. (Board and batten is somewhat rare in Prince Edward , according to Tom C.)
And this place has a connection to that drive-shed. Before they left the farm, dad donated a hand-sleigh, built by ancestor John who was a blacksmith in a shed attached to that building. I remember his annoyance at not finding the sleigh displayed on a visit to the museum. I have, somewhere, a photo of mom and a group of her contemporaries in their home-made 'Expo' pioneer dresses, on hand for some event at the museum house. I had, until a recent ruthless 'reduce and hand-on' campaign in the closets, two handwoven rugs made on a loom at the museum.
