Saltspring Farmhouse front


This is the front of the farmhouse as it was when I first received it. You can see a little trim missing on the eaves. It did have wood gutters and probably downspouts at least on the porch where one beat up one remains. I am not sure how to fix or replace this one but I like the idea of having it. There is only one porch post. It may be hard to match. It has small dowels in the ends so that it can be removed. The trim along the porch top is missing as well so the porch unit however it looked is gone now. The previous owner took the time to clean it thoroughly before they sold it to me and although it had not been shingled there is a spot here on the porch where 3 of the rows are started clearly as a demonstration of how to do it. There are short notes in pencil describing clearly the order of the rows. Such very nice gestures from the seller and so appreciated. I will copy her and pass it on if I ever give up a partly finished dollhouse.

If you can measure the length of your porch post, there are occasionally old porch posts on Ebay by Walmer. They are made as you mentioned that one is with the small dowels in the end. Hope that may help, oh and if you're looking to have gutters look at Manchester Woodworks(they have both a website and Ebay store) they make gutters from wood for old Dura Craft houses, but you may be able to configure them as you need for this house.

This is a truly beautiful build, and can't wait to see what you do with it!
