813 5th Street

This house sits under a gable roof with rectangular bays on the south and east sides of the house. The south bay was once an open porch, now enclosed with a bank of large aluminum sliding sash windows. These two gables feature open eaves with wide barge boards that are notched where there were once knee brackets. A second floor has been added to the house under a cross gable that has gable ends on the south and east sides of the house. A shed roof covers a lean-to addition on the east side of the eastern rectangular bay, and also features open eaves. The windows in the house are primarily aluminum sliding sashes, but a few original 1/1 double-hung wood sashes still exist. These windows have plain board trim on three sides and narrow sills, while the aluminum sashes have no exterior trim. The house is mostly clad with lap siding, but the eastern gable at the second floor is clad with plywood.
