Virginia house

Virginia house

A comparatively simple timber-framed wood house used during the 17th century, originating in the Chesapeake Bay area of the Commonwealth of Virginia; supported by posts sunk in the ground rather than by a foundation. The exterior walls were covered with a wall cladding of hand-split clapboards, which provided additional structural strength.
