Talking Rock: the Antique Style Hand-Hewn Cottage

It’s Been Moved and Rebuilt

 

Strong wooden logs were used to build (and rebuild) the exterior of this rustic vintage cabin, which was previously situated in Jasper, Georgia. It has since been moved to the new lavish green site just 2 miles away from the previous one. The cottage is a fun place to relish and find serenity among all the site’s trees, and the interior is composed of reclaimed wood also, yet it’s incredibly attractive and classy.  Take a look at these photos and then tell us what you think on our Facebook Page!

 

Restoration of the Nelson-Simmons-Trippe house, a circa 1809 vernacular log cabin structure in the Piedmont region of Georgia. The original two story dog trot cabin was moved from its original site near Jasper, Georgia and rebuilt. The new site for the structure was determined to be a large densely wooded, remote tract, approximately 2 miles from the original location of the historic home. Original logs hand-hewn by Cherokee Indians were numbered, cataloged, and rebuilt. Reclaimed and recycled barn-wood was used as finish material inside the house, including all stair components, paneling for music room and bathroom walls, fireplace mantles, interior door trim, and ceilings. Antique interior doors and reclaimed period hardware such as knobs and hinges were also used to enhance the mountain cabin feel.
