Pioneer Farmhouse, Clinch County

This double-pen farmhouse has wooden shingles under the tin roof, but the chimney looks like a replacement. Either way, it’s a landmark pioneer house and in relatively good shape.

Farmhouse, Tattnall County

I’m having a struggle as to how to identify the architecture of this house. It’s certainly a highly realized vernacular form. It has elements of French Colonial but sits too low to the ground and the roof is too simple. I’ve thought of it as Low Country plantation style, but that may be a big stretch. And again, it’s a bit short for that style. One thing I love about my work is the input I get from so many talented people. Input away!

A similar, but slightly smaller example is located in Egypt.

Like the houses in the two preceding posts, this was likely used as a tenant house. This view is of the rear of the structure.

This small cabin-like house was expanded by an addition on the front.

The oak tree was bigger than the house.
