THE MICHAEL WHITMORE HOUSE

The Clarke log house - click for larger image
The Clarke log house: 26 x 36. Relocated from York Co., to Lake Couchiching. The Whitmore and Burkholder houses are very similar.
A magnificent large two storey log building and perhaps the finest log house that we have owned. It measures 26 ' x 36 ' with two full height storeys plus an attic. The logs are large white pine felled from the first growth forests of York County, Ontario, in 1847. Some of the logs have a face height of nearly 24”. The superior craftsmanship evident in the hewing. The precise dovetailing is first rate. The front facade is a four bay type, with a door and three windows on the first floor and four windows on the second. included with the sale of this building is the second and third floor joist system and the roof rafter system. The rafters are substantial hewn pieces suitable for show. The joists are hand planed with beaded corners.

SOLD



THE BURKHOLDER LOG HOUSE

The Burkholder log house is in many ways similar to the Whitmore log house. It was constructed in 1853 only a few miles away and likely by the same skilled crew of log builders. It also measures 26 ' x 36 ' and has logs with faces that approach the size of those in the Whitmore house. It is a tall storey and three quarters, with good second floor joists and roof rafter system. It was built as a three bay house (a single window on each side of a central door). It could be reconstructed as a five bay house. At some point most of the original window openings were enlarged and additional openings were cut into the back wall. The Burkholder house could be restored to its original openings or it could be reconstructed so as to take advantage of the larger openings.

SOLD


THE SLOAN LOG HOUSE

The Sloan house is from the upper Ottawa River Valley, home to the largest concentration of antique hewn log buildings in the world. The vast tracts of white pine timbers that spawned the lumber trade in the late 18th century provided the building material of choice for the farm and town buildings of the early and mid 19th century. The Sloan building is a substantial storey and one half measuring 26 ' x 31 '. The first floor height is 10 feet! The logs are well hewn and neatly dovetailed pine, with faces in the 12” to 15” range. Included with the purchase of this log house are the second floor joists (hewn) and the first and second floor flooring. The front facade is a typical three bay arrangement, with a single window in a central roof gable above.

SOLD

THE MEEHAN LOG HOUSE

This outstanding “mid sized” log house is from the ‘Quebec Side’ of the Upper Ottawa River, but from an area that was settled almost exclusively by Irish immigrants in the 1840’s. The building measures 25’ x 29’ and is 1-1/2 storeys tall. It is remarkable in that it is almost completely original. Included with the building are the original (and very restorable) windows, front doorway, flooring (both floors), interior doors (with trim and hardware), and staircase. The roof rafters are substantial 3/4 round pole rafters that may be reusable.
SOLD


THE SHETLER LOG HOUSE

The Shetler house is a storey and one half building that measures 22’ x 29’. It was constructed in Ontario’s Huron County in the mid 19th century. It is a strong house with 12” to 16” hemlock logs that are well hewn and neatly dovetailed. The logs in this building are particularly well fitted. The spaces between the logs are remarkably small and uniform. The front facade is a three bay type. The relatively low roof line is well suited for the inclusion of dormer windows. There is a good set of hewn second floor joists included with this building.
SOLD
