Photographer's Note

Continuing with the Series of Historic Taal City, this is an old wood house built in early 1800. It was not a house that belongs to the Historical Registry because the owner repaired the ground floor without matching the original materials of the original house. The house has exposed wood post of tree trunks, still crooked in their original shapes. The wood framing are all exposed. The second floor windows are all sliding from corner to corner, made of white Capiz shells. Below the windows are sliding solid wood panels that can slide open for additional ventilation. So are the capiz shell sliding panels above the windows. It can slide open to let the warm air out. On this photo you can see the wood post of a tree trunk with a picture frame hanging on to it. The wood panels are already bleached white because of age and being exposed to the sun all the time while still wet. Those wood panels are from one piece of solid wood. The window sills and header are from 4" x 14 " wood sections. I can go on and on with the description of this house but no one really wants to learn to that extent.
