A move to Newburyport MA renewed my interest in all things old.This background has now evolved into research, writing, consulting and all the things I love to do.Laths were attached with rose head nails inside the house.Riven lath, short strips of oak, are nailed directly to the planks on the inside of the house and attached with rose head nails.He even offers a map showing a decided concentration of plank framed houses in the Cape Ann area with others scattered around Essex County to a much lesser degree.My first experience with plank framing came when a friend who was working on an old house called me to come over to look at a situation that had her workmen puzzled.

These planks are then pinned to the beams at the second floor level and at the bottom are pinned to the sills of the house.This could be wattle and daub, hay or often bricks laid up somewhat haphazardly because they were not meant to be seen. The old Haskell house in Gloucester has nogging only in the north wall, obviously to give the cold side of the house a little more protection from the north wind.Abbott Lowell Cummings talks about plank framed houses in his book, “Framed Houses of Massachusetts Bay”.I see things all the time on this site that would mean something different to me here in Gloucester, Cape Ann, Massachusetts.One of these features is overhangs on the gable ends of the houses.
