    Interesting. I notice that there is a little jut out over the door/porch. Makes me think maybe the porch and new roof was added after the build. Looks good.

    looks like a Hicks home
    used to be very popular in Hawaii, many still standing in old neighborhoods
    single wall, clear redwood 5/4 siding exterior, 4/4 interior
    one horizontal support at height of bottom of windows
    specially made bottom plate so it fits together at floor
    with a ridge that sticks out beyond siding to shed water off the wall
    the old double hung windows (with counterweights hidden in walls and twisty steel guides) are obsolete today
    i took one down, an old beach house in kihei
    milled all the siding to get rid of stain and wear
    new house with old wood came out very nice, lots of work of course
    better grade of clear redwood than you can buy today

    forgot to mention
    all the framing was real douglas fir (not "hemfir")
