Still Standing!

This house is still standing, although quite dilapidated. But it is still standing though. Or at least as of 2011 it was. Although it has gotten alot greener over the years!


"Mama, what do *poor* folks do who haven't got any nice cardboard to put in their windows?"

If I were Fido

I would move! It looks like that chimney could go at any moment. On second thought, maybe the dog is leaning against that pole to hold the whole thing up!

Absolutely Love It!

I too would love to live in this house. I wonder if it's still standing? It would be neat to see a current pic of it, if it is.

Home Improvement

Hope they don't need firewood since the axe is used to shim up the front porch.

The very definition of

"Dilapidated" and "Ramshackle"

Love this farmhouse but --

I don't think I would feel safe on the porch, steps or anywhere in the house. Be a fun challenge to try to refurbish it to a safety standard. Love old farmhouses!

Me like:


Home Sweet Home

I hope that house has been preserved and renovated but I would surely hesitate to use that fireplace with the shape it is in. The chimney looks like it is ready to collapse. Did anyone else notice the diamond shaped decoration built into it by the bricklayers? Nice touch. The weed growing on the chimney just below the upstairs window is a nice touch too.

Dream House

Broken window on the top floor, large porch, nice big fireplace and a happy old dog dozing in the dust.

Am I the only person that would LOVE living here? It looks like heaven to me.

I scream

The house may be falling down, but it looks like the occupants at least enjoyed their ice cream!
