Exempli gratia

Va2 Vernacular architecture 1

Viewed from the road, it looks like the house began as a somewhat asymmetrical or perhaps saltboxy structure. The roof was raised on the right side, and a small stone extension was added. Viewed from the cemetery at the side, we see a more recent shed-roofed extension sporting 14 recycled sash windows to catch the southern exposure. Surely the owners have a wonderful tale to tell (it's a summer house, so I can't just go ask them for a tour and a tale). I'll do better photographs when the light cooperates.
