Quietude, an 1837 New Hampshire cape with additions, has a total of 3027 square feet. The main house is 27’ x 37’, the rear ell, 18’ x40’ and the lean-to, 10’ x 25’. The ceiling height is eight feet.
The house is complete and fully documented, including floor plans and hundreds of photographs showing the house before and during deconstruction. There is a copy of the original deed, a postcard from 1904 and photos from the 19th century of family members on a swing in front of the house.
The owner has made many needed repairs in preparation of erecting the frame including, sills and joists. He has restored the front doorway, made all new window frames and sash, new exterior doors, jambs and casings. All new exterior trim is primed and in storage.
The owner is motivated to find a person who will reconstruct the house in a manner consistent with the quality of work he has put into Quietude’s preservation.

HISTORIC HOUSE OR BARN NEEDS RESCUE? A dedicated preservationist, William Gould Architectural Preservation, LLC has long worked to save historic houses and barns endangered by change and development. Unfortunately, such structures are being condemned at a faster rate than we can find homes for them. Consequently, while we remain very interested to hear about your antique building, we must be selective so that we can continue to effectively advocate for the buildings that we have. Our online endangered house and barn form will help you to tell us what we need to know in order to advise you on the most effective course of action to save your important historic structure.
