Jefferson rebuilt his house, Monticello II (1796−1809), doubling its size. He also shifted agricultural production on the plantation from tobacco to wheat and set up a nail factory.  On Mulberry Row, he constructed new houses for slaves; a smokehouse, dairy, and wash house to serve the needs of his family and their guests; and a nailery and smith’s shop for profit.
