Saltbox Masterpiece

Classic saltbox log and timber frame home from Tradition Design Inc.

“Classic Saltbox” Log and Timber Frame

Circa 1810 — 1850

This structure, built by the family Grobb who immigrated to Canada from Pennsylvania in the year 1800, is believed to be among the oldest homes in Ontario, having been erected in the first few years of the nineteenth century near Beamsville, in Canada’s famous wine country.

After having been disassembled, with each piece carefully cataloged and numbered, it is now offered for reconstruction on your site. This incredible hand-hewn, two story, oak timber, frame becomes the main, central core of the dwelling with its exposed posts and ceiling beams lending rare ambiance and charm that only a centuries-old building provides.

Two Early Canadian, c1850, one and a half story, log wings and a period log saltbox kitchen wing, complete the whole. It could become the crown jewel on your property with the distinction that has always lent a particular charm to those appreciative of history. Our expert period home artisans are available now, allowing this wonderful vintage home to live again.
