  1. There is something reassuring, comforting, about fresh paint on old wood, reaching the end of a job well done.

  2. Love it. Not sure of the practicality of owning and living in it at my age, but I still dream.

  3. It's a lovely building and the quality of the craftsmanship is amazing. The red colour reminds me of the town of Lago in Clint Eastwood's film, "High Plains Drifter" - a very different place obviously!

  4. It needs some spot lights and a lot of colored mulch !

  6. Newest status symbol for my bunch is a drive way like this. I love it. And of course, the house.

    1. When I was young I remember asking my Dad why we didn’t have a smooth, bright white concrete driveway like a lot of my friends. He told me some day I would understand! And now, one of my favorite sounds is walking on the greige gravel or hearing a car drive slowly toward the house. cheers! scotmiss

  7. The inside is probably equally interesting, I suspect. And are there more photos there than when I first looked at this post this morning?

  8. I love the Brooks saddle & Frost River bag - old school quality!

  9. Wondering if there is some special symbolism represented by the front door knocker ... a mythological figure??

  10. Beautifully restored - the Medusa door knocker gorgeous, but a little bit of the devil for the Puritans.

  11. I love a gravel driveway, but wonder how it survives winter plowing.

    1. The answer is not well. And it's tricky to salt, so if you plow and then get any sort of refreezing, it turns into a bumpy skating rink. This driveway, however, appears to be crushed shells.
