Jacksonville, Florida (vicinity), circa 1905. The unfortunate title for this one in the Detroit Publishing catalog: "A Darky Homestead." Note the birdhouse on the dormer. 8x10 inch glass negative, Detroit Publishing Company. View full size.

In Australian Real Estate language, this would be billed as a "Renovators Delight."

Dormer oddities

The middle dormer appears to be a door- not a window. I would not advise using it though. And whats with the tiny-house on top of the right dormer?? For birds? Bet there's a lot of weird stuff inside too.

Well, that is a bit unusual

Parking the bird house up on the roof made sense to someone, I guess.

A watercolorist's dream

Especially the wooden fence with 1,754 different size boards.

Dave Ramsey would be so proud.

Just five more payments and she's ours!
