19th Century Plaster in a Vermont Farmhouse








Studies of the plaster walls and layers of paint, paper, and evidence of life in my friend Justin’s 19th Century Vermont farmhouse, which he is lovingly restoring. To follow Justin’s project, check him out on Instagram. If you’d like to contribute to the restoration cause, you can make a donation on Go Fund Me.

    This is fantastic! I’m now following Justin on instagram. My mother restored an old Vermont house in the 50’s, that’s still in the family. I can’t say she retained the fundamentals as dutifully as Justin has endeavored.

        Yes, I see. It’s evident in his work and emphasis on preservation, as stated in the notations. Where so many others would gut the plaster in favor of drywall, he recognizes its charm and witness to time.
        I too, can learn a lot. I like the carried wisdom of, “Once it’s gone, it’s gone.”
