Poplar Forest Renovation
In 1806, Thomas Jefferson began building his Octangular home Poplar Forest in Bedford, Virginia. Even though Jefferson designed and built many homes, Poplar Forest was only the second home that he built for himself. In 1814, Thomas Jefferson designed and built a wing off of his home Poplar Forest. The wing contained a unique “serrated” roof system consisting of a hidden layers of ridge and gutter rooflets beaneath a terras deck. The HeartPine Company supplied the restoration craftsman of Poplar Forest with material in which they produced about 4,500 heart pine shingles.
