American 19th Century One Story Clapboard House, No.1

This model represents a typical small dwelling that was common across the United States by the first half of the 19th century. These structures usually were constructed with simple wooden frames and covered on the exterior with various types of weather boarding such as shingles, vertical board  and batten or horizontal clapboards. Interiors were often finished by attaching wooden laths to the framing and applying plaster to the walls. In the era before electric lighting, interior colors could be bright, however the least expensive and easily renewed finish was white wash. By the 1820s iron stoves were beginning to replace open hearth fireplaces for cooking and heating and many new structures were built without traditional fireplaces if stoves were available. 

Many structures similar to our model survive to this day, often with one or more additions to accommodate the many amenities required for a modern family. 
Additional buildings and accessories will be offered in limited numbers in the near future to create the perfect environment to stage our Village Green or American Civil War figures.

This model measures 10 5/8" wide X 8" high X 6 1/2" deep and features a typical first floor with attic space which was often accessible by ladder and often used as sleeping quarters children or hired hands.
