This is wonderful! Reminds me a bit of our home in upstate New York when I was a girl! Big old wrap around porch... hidden stairways, laundry chutes... It was great fun for an 8 year old!
Larry Bliss: Hidden stairways... how cool is that...
I can just imagine how much fun and pride someone had in restoring this one, Larry. I love the color combination.
Larry Bliss: There are lots of restored homes like this in downtown...

I like these places with the wrap around porches. In our Karoo area, where it really gets hot in summer, most old farm houses have porches like that. It provides shade and a few degrees cooler than without.
Larry Bliss: Big porches were once a Southern tradition. You could talk to neighbors without them expecting you to invite them in...
It has been a while since they used such nice wood to build houses like this one... i like the stars too Larry....petersmile
