Abstract
It is rare to find documents illustrating the building of a house from beginning to end. But Rev. Jonathan Fisher, while building his house in Blue Hill, Maine, kept a journal during its 1814 construction. The journal keeps track of the day-to-day progress and includes drawings of floorplans and details of trim and framing.
