More information

Background information:
This wooden house from around 1702 has two floors, upstairs and downstairs. The top floor has a gable roof which runs parallel to the street. It features Dutch tiles and 4 dormers. The ground floor level consists of woodwork facades, which are provided on the outer side with horizontally disposed boards. These boards are painted in the traditional Zaandam color. Frames are painted white.

Architectural details:
The house has a traditional timber frame with stone plinth. The stone plinth was chosen because people already knew from experience boards to the ground quickly perish. Because of the stone plinth was a stoop was needed at front and rear door.In addition to the plinth the rest of the house was built with wood. It was cheaper and lighter in weight. The latter was important because the soil in the Zaanstreek is little firm.
