Two Pics of My House - 1900's and 2009

Now.... and


Just recently went to the local tax assessors office to find out any information on my house. On the very last page of the 14 page document was a scan. I showed this to a friend and she shuddered. "This is YOUR HOUSE?" She has not seen it in person... so maybe she thinks I live in this house now. ? The naive thing about me is I would Love to live in this house. With a furnace and maybe change those one over two windows glass to double pane. Electricity would be great, too.

Note the wee linden tree on the right of the picture which now towers over this house. And the small quince bush that became a towering mess-o-branches near the front door that I recently had yanked. The bush, not the front door. Sometimes correct grammar eludes me.

That is really a big difference. See what a little siding and paint can do? Although, when I watch these programs that says you can fix a room or a house front with a couple thousand dollars makes me laugh. Yeah, that's in materials, it's the labor that's the biggest cost, I say.

Amazing - you always get the best 'now and then' photos. Whish I could get some. and by the way, you do live in that house with, double paned windows and electricity (of a sort) and furnace and even running water!
