Carved in barnwood and later used in this interior renovation of an Eastern Long Island, NY farm was a simple inscription: R.E.T. 1903, with a flourish. It was the hand of the original owner, R.E. Tuttle (a.k.a. Tuthill), an early family name in this region.
Pictured is Jim Naples of East Bay Builders, Inc. From the available barnwood and original structures, Naples preserved and showcased so many of these details, preserving so much history.
