    Is that the Biltmore house and Gardens in Asheville, NC??

    The Biltmore House in Asheville is a gorgeous place. My wife and I have been there a few times, a great example of period architecture and some amazing craftsmanship!

    Funny thing about the Biltmore House, it was the Vanderbilts’ summer home.

    They had a few of them, one in Bah Habah, Maine….something like a 70 room summer cottage lol. I think they just donated it recently.

    I looked through some of those pics on the link and I noticed there were a lot of wine bottles being poured and a lot of cigarettes being smoked. Must be a trade secret in there maybe?

    I would say those were beer bottles? The beer was safer than water then to drink. Yes carpenter are supposed to drink beer>

    That is always the hardest part of the vacation, getting back into work mode. Tough after setting your own schedule for a week or so.

    Here is another link to some free carpentry books, mostly from the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.
