This two and a half story "ell" shaped log house with metal hipped roof is very large. The outside has been replastered several times. It has a large porch across half the front of the house. Large chimneys are at each end and in the middle. The doors are made in the old-time way with hand hammered latches with curved handles. This house has eighteen windows with four 18x20 panes.
There are four large and six small rooms with seven and ten foot ceilings. Under part of the house is a plain, stone walled cellar. There are fireplaces in nearly every room.
