We will give this a few days before I reveal what the exact cost was at that time. I like that .29Cents, but then again I am sure that 1 cent bought a fair amount, probably a half litre of kerosine,
Maybe a few more would like to risk a guess.
What about the pitch of the roof why do you think that particular pitch was asked for?
here is a few more information tidbits to base your guess on or to just read about--
-There were 6 windows with 12 lights each -the floor was 2 thicknesses of g&t lumber hemlock and pine -Planking was 2" Hemlock planks 12 feet long and all over 8" in width and each nailed with 3-- 6" wrought iron spikes. -one roof ventilator -Hemlock roof boarding -roofing good sound cedar shingles #1, laid at 5" to the weather -10 feet between floor and ceiling
