Age Of House

Tony, That is the largest outhouse I have ever seen. Even a railing. Wow. You guys in the Colorado woods sure live comfortably.

Stamped August 1952

I have seen here the builders name and date carved into a roof support member, the oldest I have seen has been 1845.

As a quickie, many times the insulation in the attic has a certificate of installation stapled up there, somewhere. I have found that date to be fairly consistent with the reported age of the house. Not always present, though.

Original newsprint is the best guide. Be it behind your bathroom tiles of under your kitchen floor.
