Stacked board insulation on house on Michael Korns, Sr. farm, Somerset County, PA.

Stacked board wall filler

This photograph shows the region above the first floor windows on the east end of the house on the Michael Korns, Sr. farm in Southampton Township, Somerset County, PA. The region above the right hand window has conventional sawn lath attached to studs. The region above the left hand window is simply filled with boards. My guess would be that this was a relatively light weight way to fill the wall for insulating purposes.
