Boat House, Bonham State Park, c. 1999

The boat house has two kinds of siding: clapboard and board-and-batten. The roof, too, has several shapes: an asymmetrical gable roof on the waterside portion of the structure and a hipped roof on the far section. The beveled ends of the boards beneath the gable roof and the door hinges are both fanciful gestures to a nautical theme.
