The chicken coop/kennel (where Inn is now), Aug 1973. Sunrise is peaking out the door.

It\u2019s my understanding that this building was originally built as a kennel by Verly (Verlie?) Kesterson and his identical twin brother. It was Lorna Kesterson, Verly\u2019s wife, that told me that. Only later was it used as a chicken coop. Both Verly and Lorna were identical twins, and they each married their other\u2019s sibling. It was Lorna who first allowed me to try milking a cow, her Guernsey. It was a sad attempt, but I did get a few dribbles. HA! They were both gentle and kind people, and I expect their place, the second property down the valley from us but above Will\u2019s, was like a beautiful little jewel. I thought it was idyllic.

You can see the roof has a variety of appearances. The large shiny spots center right are corrugated galvanized metal. Towards the left end of the gable are a couple of large lighter areas that aren\u2019t shiny like the metal. Those are large hand split (i.e., reeved) shakes that most likely came from the small barn.

All of the structural lumber of both barns (except the floor of the big barn, which was 2x4s on edge, and the barns\u2019 supporting poles) and all of the shakes covering the roofs and walls, were hand split with a froe and mallet by Verly and his identical twin brother. The wall shakes on the barns were large, some 3 feet by 5 feet or longer. Verly told me the cedar in East Valley was, at least locally, particularly straight and fine grained. He said he personally had split boards thirty feet long and a foot wide, three quarters of an inch at the butt end, half and inch at the top. That is virtually no taper, and I personally have never seen cedar wood that fine. Colloquially, trees are trees, logs and wood for burning are wood, and anything sawn or reeved is lumber.

I had opportunities to reeve shakes. It\u2019s seriously satisfying work, and glorious to hear that shake POP off the bolt. And a cedar bolt is a piece of cedar shakes are reeved from.
