Triangular lath suggests an early house construction date (posted July 2007, revised July 2007) The discovery of triangular lath on the house on the Michael Korns, Sr. homestead suggests an early construction date. The photograph also reveals more reciprocating sawmill marks on core structural lumber. The photograph shows triangular lath and crude plaster on one wall, and sawn lath and more modern plaster on another wall of the same room, which suggests that part of the plaster was replaced during a remodeling job well after the house was originally built. Reasearch on plaster construction suggests that the triangular lath was placed too close together to assure mechanical interlocking with the plaster, and much of it had to be replaced at a later date.

The Michael Korns, Sr. Farm Photo Index web page has a number of new pictures, including pictures that prove that the house was built during the age of the reciprocating saw mill.
