    There is one like that near me, in a rural area. They even have their own tree-type bucket truck to do painting etc:eek:. They finally got restoring all the way around the house done in stages, then the part they finished first, already needed redoing AGAIN.

    It even has a very large caretakers house out back, that is bit bigger than a normal sized house, ......to also care for

    makes me think about just how wealthy the original owners were...back when poverty was common. Just to pay for constant maintaining/heating..never mind the building costs.

    Here is a picture of our brick house built in 1866. It's 1 1/2 stories tall sitting on 15 acres and about 4 miles from the closest town. It sits about 600 feet off of the road so it is somewhat private.

    This needs to be brought back and moved to the antiquated forum.

Sporting a fresh paint job. Whew! Painting a multi color house you realize why so many of these old houses were white washed back decades ago!

    It is, but I felt it was worth resurrecting.

    Home is a small 1923 cottage (at Halloween) that I completely rebuilt. Not much to look at from the front...

    Here is ours with the porch replaced. It was torn off in the late 1960's. First photo is from 1920's when my great, great grandparents lived there. We rebuilt the porch in 2017.

    It is an old thread, but a great one! Here's a pic of my house. It's a 1904 Dutch Colonial. We bought it in 2004, and are only the second owners on title. The original family built it, and it has been in the same family until we bought it. The garage is down the driveway on the left and is 900 sq.ft. and very unusual for our neighborhood.

    Here's mine. Still has the single pane wood windows and no insulation. Who cares, I just burn more wood.
    Built around 1908-14
    Anyone who comes out for Deuce Days can keep an eye out for it:

    I wish I still lived in Cleveland. You should have a car show/open house on you property!
