of the Episcopal9 Church, posrsibly withea the aid of on1 o~f

of which remains in the crawl space. It appears from some
photographs that there was once a heavy timber system of
plates and transverse tie beams supporting the floor and up-
per framing, and which served to support and provide the
restraint for the outward thrust of the bottom buttress ends.
This is now all replaced by newer concrete foundations and a
relatively conventional floor framing system of joists on
beams, continuous perimeter 2x plate and header joists. At
this time most of the vertical support for the building must
be from the plank walls as many of the columns are suffici-
ently rotted or loose at the bottom to offer nothing but the
visual appearance of support.
There may have been three roofs on St. Thomase. Sometime in
the late 191O's or 1920 the:m was a change from the diamond
patterned shingle roof which shows in a c.1970 photograph,
and which would be in keeping with Gothic Revival tastes.
The later roof is of plain cedar shingles. Presently the
roof is of cement-ashestos shingles.
It is in the treatment of the gables and end wall framing that
there appears a sophisticated taste in ordering the arrange-
ment of verticals, horizontalac and bracing which articulates
the framing and seeks to convey a respect for the materials,
and forces involved which might be considered similar to the
Gothic soirit. The treatment of the west and east ends is
distinctly different, the east elevation echoing the trusses
within and providing more wall area within which to place the
altar window. Ornamenting of the members is restricted to
the practical device of chamfering of exposed edges, which
tends to emphasize the joints.
The original construction must have rapidly proven to be too
drafty and cold as all walls were overlaid with channel pat-
tern shiplap siding, stopped into the framing system with
quarter-round moulding. This required the addition of sur-
rounds and casings to the windows which were first stopped
into openings cut into the plank walls. This addition oc-
curred before there was time to consider painting the original
exterior. Only on the east elevations and the entrance vesti-
bule is the single wall construction exposed. The horizontal
siding and quarter-round mouldings are installed with wire
nails which indicates that this was done sometime after 1886,
the date when another building in the area, the K.am Wah Chung
Company Building in John Day was sold to local Chinese who
are presumed to have added a second story built with wire nail
The sactisty wing is a::imple space, principally distinguished
by the built-in cupboards in the thidkness of the wall loatween
the chapel wall finish and that of the sacri8tYe determined
by the depth of the columns. The walls had been lined with
muslin and decorated with a bold arabesque pattern, all of
which now covered by wood fiberboard panels and ceiling tile,

buailti to accommodate the stair is undiscovered, The upper room,
despite appearances from the exterior, is a comfortably-s.ized
room and quite pleasantly finished and usable as a study.~ It
should nfever be3 used for any5, group mbeeting or SUnday school
activities because of the possibiity of entrapment from the
necesnsariliy restri=~cted exSitina.rj
Interior decoration remains very basic and simple today. The
stained glass windows~, the articulation of the roof framing,
and t~he natziural woodi fIinishes air~e tihe 7do,'.next de-.corat~c.i~",ive
qualEities. Ati the east~ endr, th1e wall. behind the chancel is
enlriche~d with a finelyi miade wa;insoo~t o~f p5.in panels and~ mould--
ings which rep~eat the, lan~ice paZttern ofI tihe ri~ndows and the2
gable en~ds. A moulded cornice~ caps thi-e sliiidewall8s ati th-e ezle-
vation of the top plate beam. The chancel floor is carpeted
in a wi~ne-red color wshich overlies a re~d-blanckc Axminaster pat--
tern carpet used as a pad. The pine pews and fine chancel
furnishings complete th-3e i~nterior. Matching chocir panels were
