Hi steve
Ive been working on the victorian for 2 yeaars now. Do not live there but with a partner we are restoring it for a B&B Its 7 bedrooms stone with the original woodwork and moulded ceilings in excellent condition. It was deserted for 6 years, so its quite a task. It was designed by famed NY archetict Stanford White and built in 1903. Ill send pics next week

Looking forward to that Scope! Stanford White is the real deal and the house sounds interesting. Mine predates that era by a bit and was built by shipwrights. It's a mishmass of styles but started out an English gabled farmhouse. It was owned by several Schooner Captains and their families during the 1800s. Turn of the 20th century, a Boston Doctor (one of the first nutrisionists) bought it and had formal gardens and buildings added on to it. It's still quite original though with pine floor planks as they came off the tree. Some 12" or more wide and some as small as 6". All horsehair, paster and lath walls too. The old girl has stood up too allot for a wood frame and still quite sound. Most of the roof lines had cedar guttering built into the edges and soffits and they would catch water than fed to a cistern in the basement. This was probably the most challenging (and damaging) thing on the house to "fix". But......I digress.

No liner . I decided not to line the firepot since it is only 12 inches. It is over 100 years old and looks like new so felt it wasn't necessary.

That's a nice house. You have an American Foursquare. These were extremely popular from about 1905 up to the mid '20's. Foursquares have one of the most space efficient designs in all of American Architecture. Yours looks like it was built during the mid nineteen teens give or take.

An another topic.. Do yourself a big favor and listen to me, have a copy of the fire pot cast. Keep the original stored and use the copy.

Thanks william for the advice on the firepot. How do you go about having a pot cast?? You still have to explain how to use the slideing damper door?? house is not my home but an investment to turned into a b&b with a partner it has 7 bedrooms and was started in 1903 and finished in 1905

I would either recast the fire pot and use the copy or line the original. I understand wanting the extra space so having a spare makes sense. Tomahawk Foundry in Eagle lake Wi. is a good choice as is Auburn Stove foundry in Maine. Ruby is looking good!

The house is a real beauty Multiscope. Love to see the insides when you get it done.

Great looking house,I like Steve would enjoy seeing the inside.

If you have time and would not mind, could you put a straight edge across the top of the fire pot and let me know the measurement from the top of the fire pot to the bottom of the magazine ?
