Way Back Then

In this grainy old photo, you can see our house--- in the background. The first thing we wanted to find when we started this home restoration was some original photos of the home. The only ones found of our home were from the neighbor's archives.
The red outlines our original roofline.
Another found photo was later in the history of the home.
You can see the gingerbread on our porch behind "Grandma".

A storm had damaged the tower and was replaced with a sunroom or maybe what was used as a sleeping porch.
No central heat and air back then!

I would love to get my hands on some of that


  1. It's so nice to find some photos.

  2. I'm loving the journey! Can't wait to see the finished home.

  3. Wow! That is awesome that you were able to get some photos. Don't you wish the walls could talk???? Whoops, the walls are gone, aren't they???
