Burlington Plantation Smokehouse

This is an early 19th century smokehouse we relocated and restored several years ago. The juniper shingle roof features fanned hips and was carried out over 4 of the hottest days of the year (105+ each day). You can see our "circus tent" we erected to escape the sun while we worked. There was no breeze so we couldn't work more than an hour at a time before we had to come down out of the sun.
