Attic view, Korns family farmhouse

This 2008 photo shows a view of the attic in the end of the now-uninhabited 19th century Southampton Township, Somerset County family farmhouse that belonged to Daniel Korns, Jr., then to John Wilson Korns, then to Allen Korns. This photo shows some of the top of the timber frame construction, including bracing. The post in the foreground appears to be a newer pine brace; note the difference in color, and the knots.

The attic floor must have double layer construction, because the floor boards that we can see are aligned with the joists that they are supported by.
