Notes
Survey number HABS TN-117
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-10).
Significance: The grouping of two cabins occur frequently. They are usually grouped in one of two ways - with the chimney separating the two buildings or with an entry between the two buildings as the Ephraim Bales House. The entry is called a "dog trot" by the natives. The second cabin is usually the result of over crowding in the original cabin. Some times the second cabin is a new structure but more frequently it is an old building moved from some other location. The latter is what occurred at the Ephraim Bales Place. Originally the roof of the kitchen was framed in the opposite direction to what it is at present. Proof of this is found in notches cut in the plates to receive rafters and in the fireplace opening cut in the east wall of the kitchen. The fireplace and chimney are always located at the gable end of the structure.
