This building, adjacent to the family cemetery, was probably the shop. I don’t know when it was built, but it appears at least to have incorporated the sill plates from an older structure. At one point I considered razing it because of the extensive termite damage and subsequent collapse and settling of some of the framing members, but it had a roof, and three of its four walls were fairly sound. I brought the floor as close to level as possible,  replaced a rotten sill plate, sistered in new sleepers and 2×4 studs, and refloored and sheeted the interior with air-dried yellow pine inch boards.
